A customer brought this patient in and admitted trying to fix it himself. He was trying to use common parts from a hardware store and not lamp parts. To fix this lamp properly we'll need to use the right parts and the right techniques. Some parts for this repair include: solid brass lamp base, seating ring with recessed center and rolled edge, rubber washer, 2 - 1 inch brass seating rings, and a steel nut. Of course we will reuse any part from the lamp like the lamp cord, lamp socket, harp base, and lamp harp.
