Introduction
If you need a light stand for photos, this guide will show you how to take a standing lamp to convert a (broken) standing lamp by removing the lamp components. This lamp is a common style and should cover 99% of them but there may be minor variations. This will not impact the guide, but this is something to keep in mind. This guide will also help you identify reusable components for other projects. [ … ] '''''Read me: While this is not the best stand you can get as modifications may be required, these lamps are cheap or even free because they are so common and inexpensive.''''' This can be advantageous if you are willing to disassemble one to eliminate the redundant components. == Guide notes == * '''''Use common sense during the cord and socket removal procedure. Death or injury may occur if you make a mistake, as you are handing 120-240V AC!''''' * Make sure you use a lamp that you are certain you do not plan on reassembling or is missing parts that cannot be readily purchased. Post disassembly reversal may be impractical, especially if you used a broken lamp that needed other parts and made modifications. * If possible, use a lamp with a dangerous problem like a busted socket guard cover, as the one in this guide had a problem with. The one I used in this guide cracked and was supported with electrical tape until it was pulled out of service due to redundancy. These are the best candidate for this type of project, as they cannot be used without major repairs and the parts cost often exceeds the entire lamp. or uniqueness), uniqueness) in every situation, the cord and socket can be reused easily. easily reused. Save these for another project if they are in good condition. * '''''DO NOT keep any part that looks damaged. Consider these parts garbage for good measure.'''''
