2 piece base century

Started this discussion. Last reply by Claude J on Monday. 14 Replies

Hi there,I’m just wondering if anyone knows why the 2 part base centuries do not cast much light out of the pin holes? Seems like the ‘70’s ones really have quite the display of light emitting from…Continue

60’s or 70’s Century?

I just got a sweet century off of eBay that seems to me might be a late 60’s model. It didn’t come with a box or the plastic black base but otherwise is in awesome condition. It has a two part base…Continue

"Common problem I see it all the time with restorations take it apart, raise the socket a few turns and put it back together DFO NOT put the cord restraint back on (or the plastic base) until you test fit the bulb as this may take several…"

"I must have to adjust the height of the bulb socket in my 1 piece century because when I’ve tried putting an R-16 in, the globe will not seat properly. The socket must be too high. "

Claude J replied to Jordan Reeder's discussion 2 piece base century
"That is the purpose of the heat ring. The Century base is designed to focus the heat to the globe so it heats faster and limits the amount wasted escaping out of the holes"

"I have found now that I have a 70’s 1 piece base, a normal 40 watt appliance bulb makes the awesome light pattern all around the lamp. Since there is a cone inside of the 2 piece base, there is only SOME light that comes out of the pinholes.…"

"On the R16 some appear from pictures to have more of a reflector look and others are for sure frosted. With a Century, do you need the non-reflector type for the pin holes to shine or do you need the reflector?"

"Yes there was an all green one, but it had a felt finish. Model 8409 "Mexicali Avacado". Came with lime green wax in "green mist" liquid. There was also an orange and gold model with a similar felt finish."

ALL green enchantress planter

Hi there you beautiful lavaheads... being a lavahead myself, I am curious... was there ever an enchantress that was all green? I remember being at my cousin's house and going up into the loft of an old hay barn where he hung out. There were old Atari games and posters of Van Halen...but what I noticed the most was his all green planter lava lamp. It was not plugged in or flowing but I could tell that the wax was green as was the base and cap (the latter were pretty obvious.) Just wondering if…See More

Sticking wax disaster

"I had great success with your procedure, wondering if using less liquid paraffin and more regular paraffin would cause “spiking” during the warming up phase. Mine just melts in a big blob and then bloops around like it should. "

Kyle S replied to Jordan Reeder's discussion 2 piece base century
"I’ve never seen an image of the two piece century base until now and am unsure how the dimensions of it differ from the newer bases from models such as the silver century. It looks really cool! What you could try is a higher wattage bulb (if…"

"I finally found an R16 bulb (many stores have switched over almost entirely to LED bulbs these days) anyway, it casts actually less light out of the pin holes on the base than a clear, 40 watt appliance bulb does. I'm lead to believe that it is…"
