What to do with an old lamp and those left over x-rays from when you broke your 4th and 5th metacarpals.
Step 1: Dissemble old lamp
First I separated the lampshade along the seam.
Second I removed the top and bottom metal rings.
It all came apart fairly simple just be careful not to rip a big tare in the shade (which i did). When your done you'll have a large C shaped piece of paper and two metal rings (see pic).
