I’ve been given an old floor lamp that I’d like to use, but it only works with one light bulb that I’ve tried and I need it to work with another.
Investigating the floor lamp, I can see that the contact tab has been pushed down and melted into the plastic housing. I’ve tried releasing it but it’s glued fast. I’m thinking that the best way to overcome this is to solder in a new copper contact tab onto the original, but I’m interested in receiving some advice as to whether this is the best approach. Any advice welcome.
