Floor Lamp With Mogul Socket and 3 Way Switch Wiring Diagram

In response to requests for a wiring diagram for a floor lamp with a mogul socket and 3 way switch, we have prepared this rough sketch. There are 4 connections inside the cluster body. All of the neutral wires (nickel screw with ribbed or white wire) from each socket connect in one wire nut. The other connections are for the hot side (brass screw with black or smooth wire) to the switch and socket. With this connection the 3 way switch and the mogul socket are independent of each other.
