  1. THANK YOU!!! I've been looking for this information for a few days now. I have an old Aladdin lamp that has a bulb inside the base and I've been wracking my brain trying to figure out how to wire it so that base light will turn off! You made my day.

  2. Just a quick question, is there a way to wire a lamp with a light in the base as well as the harp with a 2 screw 2-circuit socket? or is there such a thing?

  4. Where can I find a 2-circuit 3 way switch for a 1930s Mogul lamp? It has brass contacts rather than wires; the center bulb contact screws directly into the top of the switch.

    Thanks for the help

  7. Hello. I need help running wire through these sconce wall lights. I am making them into a wall sconce that is not fixed in the wall. I am have a seriously difficult time getting wire through the scroll. I tried to pull wire with the old one, but the wire is so fragile it basically crumbled and came apart.

  9. Hello, I have an old wall sconce with candelabra sockets. I ordered new candle sleeves and they won’t fit over the cardboard insulators. I peeled the insulators off without thinking. The new sleeves are paper on the inside and the sockets won’t be touching metal. Is this ok or do I have to have the insulators for this type of socket? Thank you.
