Where I Live:
My First Lava Lamp was:
Had several lava lamps in the 70s. Still have a Simplex Wave Machine, but unfortunately the acrylic case developed a crack and it lost most of the fluid. Presently, I have a Texaco lava lamp, Red lava and clear fluid.

Simplex Wave Machine

I have an old Simplex Wave Machine that developed a crack in the acylic and lost its' content. I really like the relaxing appearance of the wave. I need some insight as to the nature of the two liquids contained in the wave machine. I would guess the contents are less complex and fussy that the Lava lamp. I would appreciate any comments regarding the liquids.

BTW, I was looking at doing mine in 4 inch diameter round tubing. The can also cut the round endcaps to precision dimensions and include it with your order. A 6 footer of the 4 inch 1/8 thick tube is about 60 dollars and they can also cut that to length. The ont hing I have been pondering is how I will mount any sort of bracketry to the bottom of the tube. Perhaps we could ask Bohdan to take some photos of how it looks on his Lava Machine?.

I have only started researching companies that will sell short orders of acyrlic to the public. The rectangular tubing is harder to find and there is a significant price difference between extruded and cast acrylic. Cast is much clearer than extruded, but can cost 20% more. I think I like the functionality of the round tubing better after seeing the Lava Brand Wave Motion Machine in action. When I get home, I will share my sources with you.
