I bought this Astro Lite recently and have began work restoring it. The lamp was in really rough shape, but the exterior of it looks so much better after some extensive cleaning and polishing. The wax is sticking and the the master fluid is cloudy but it runs. I've never had a consort type globe with original fluid that ran. I'm going to run it several times before opening it to see if it improves on its own before I mess with it.
