  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?

  3. I'm so glad for this site!

    I found the information needed in a few seconds! This site's primary purpose is to inform and educate (as the internet used to be).

    This is now bookmarked as a favourite page.

    Thank you for the info.
    Thank you for not selling anything.
