The Lamp Caretaker replied to Fernando Nicotera's discussion What is your opinion on the Mathmos iO?
"I think the side framing really detracts from the overall look.  I've got the feeling that it was meant to protect the globe in case someone bumped into the lamp knocking it over.  The lamp stands a greater chance of not…"

Few Globes for sale

" Can anyone here give a little info on the chrome bases at the top of the lava globes in Claude's photo.  I have one and I'm clueless as to what globe it came with since the globe I got with it was a red glitter lava globe that…"

"I had this issue once and waited until the lava lamp wax was heated through then removed the globe from the base. I then gently leaned the lamp over to the side of the stain and let the wax ooz over the stain.  Once fully covered I held the…"

The Lamp Caretaker replied to jmpenny32's discussion MASSIVE FIBER OPTIC SCORE ON EBAY!! NEW OLD STOCk!
"As promised I received my two lamps and they match up and the fibers are long enough that they nearly touch the surface when it spins. When you click the lamp on it goes clockwise until you turn off and when you turn it back on it spins the opposite…"

The Lamp Caretaker replied to jmpenny32's discussion MASSIVE FIBER OPTIC SCORE ON EBAY!! NEW OLD STOCk!
"Thanks everyone here and on Instagram who purchased one of these spectacular lamps or who's owned since 2000.  It appears the slow then fast turning is built in so this is not a flaw but part of the design. If the lamp goes clockwise the…"

The Lamp Caretaker replied to jmpenny32's discussion MASSIVE FIBER OPTIC SCORE ON EBAY!! NEW OLD STOCk!
"Zach - mine slowly rotated then it started rotating faster and abruptly slows down again.  I'm not sure if it's part of the design since I have nothing to compare it to and my new lamps will not be delivered until next week. If yours…"

"I spoke to Selleer and they are taking care of the issue.  I advised members here to buy since they are going to double check both fibers and lamp before senidng.  The lamps too good a deal to pass up.  "

The Lamp Caretaker replied to Cleric's discussion Can you help me find a specific lamp?

The Lamp Caretaker replied to Jason Madore's discussion Were Colossus/Humungo Lamps Advertised?
"I own the HUMUNGO which in my opinion is the TIFFANY of all the lava lamps.  I've never seen any ad for the HUMUNGO lamp.  I've seen ads for the colossus.  I was told by one employee at LavaLite years ago that the HUMONGO…"

The Lamp Caretaker replied to Andrew Webb's discussion New to this.
"You can try making your own lava lamp at home but it won't be the same as the original or even close. The closest I've ever come to the real thing is using Magma Goo kits.  You need a lot more than a globe , wax and…"

The Lamp Caretaker replied to shane jones's discussion Have a chance at a colossus.
"You never mentioned what the sellers asking price is so it's hard to determine if you are going to lose your arse or not. That being said if it's cloudy you should only pay 400.00 - here's why - once you crack the top to replace the…"
