Repairing Incandescent Table and Floor Lamps
Lamps that take standard incandescent, CFL or LED equivalent bulbs are very popular. Whether they are large floor lamps or small table models, their basic parts are similar.
A lamp has only a few basic parts that can cause a malfunction. They include the plug, the socket, the switch, the cord and the bulb. Understanding how a lamp is put together not only allows you to make any repairs, but also helps you in making your own lamps out of old bottles or a piece of old wood.
All the part to put a lamp together can be found in a kit form or in individual pieces at your local home center such as City Mill.
