"Funnily enough I've recently been seeing cheap knock offs on ebay that are the fluidium shape, but with metal bodies. They seem to be coming from Germany Not sure why Mathmos never bothered to give it a go in metal, but then it's the same…"

"All of the problems mentioned here is why the fluidium was discontinued. Along with bottle clouding. Plastic and heat a bad combination.  Its a shame they didn't reverse engineer the base and cap into cast metal.  I've got 3 but…"

"Thanks for both your offers Autumn and Arne, I think the cheapest way of getting a heat shield is by DM'ing John and getting the details of the company here in the UK as if I did get it from Goolamps I'm still gonna have to pay European…"

"A little update on my Fluidium issue, I managed to get some 40w incandescent reflector bulbs, and YES! I have a working  lamp (see pictures) The only issue I now have is it doesn't run great, I just get a big ball that goes up, then comes…"

Arne replied to Sue's discussion Fluidium green
"As Mr MaGoo suggested you should get one of those glass inserts which came only with the first series of Fluidium which has the dotted bottle. No idea why Mathmos stopped to ship them without the glass pieces as so many fluidiums had the…"

"In that case Lampfancy I've got a phase 1, as mine has the motif on the bottle. I'm going to go to my local hardware store tomorrow to see if they've got one of those incandescent ones like you've posted a link to. I saw those…"

Autumn replied to Sue's discussion Fluidium green
"I ran my fluidium for years with a 25 watt reflector bulb. Originally I tried a 40 bulb and the base began to crack. I actually ordered one of the glass rings from Marcel a few days ago because the flow on the fluidium never really was spectacular…"

Mr MaGoo replied to Sue's discussion Fluidium green
"Sorry I am late to the party!  But, sounds like what you need is one of these.  Marcel sells them on his site, would be a good addition to your lamp.  Hopefully it will still fit and seat to do what it was meant…"

lampfancy replied to Sue's discussion Fluidium green
"Think the bulb you posted is actually halogen (outwardly they look the same as a standard r39, but actually have a halogen capsule inside the bulb) I think these put out less heat that standard incandescent, so the bulb in the link might be worth a…"

squibn replied to Sue's discussion Fluidium green
"Hi Lampfancy, Thanks for your reply, yeh I've tried one of those bulbs and the wax just doesn't move at all, it just lights up the base! I've attached the bulb I tried, it looks the same as the one you are suggesting, but there may…"

lampfancy replied to Sue's discussion Fluidium green
"I never did trust the halogen bulbs that Mathmos sell for Fluidiums, bought one a while back, but as soon as I saw how close it was to the plastic ‘fins’ inside the base I knew I didn’t want to risk it for fear of frying the…"

squibn replied to Sue's discussion Fluidium green
"Hello,  Apologies for replying to this post (nearly) 10 years later. Haha! I'm having the exact same issue as the original poster. I bought a bulb that looked like the right type from Mathmos but it was a halogen one and began to scorch…"
