No luck on Amazon. I even contacted Stiffel directly and they didn't have an answer. I then contacted a few antique lamp supply houses and they couldn't help. I cannot believe that I'm the only person on the planet that has had to replace this part. Crazy!
Nope. Vintage and modern didn't agree with each other. However, I will not be defeated! I'll rig this mother somehow!
Thanks Phil. I've posted a question. We'll see what happens.
Right. I three-way bulb. @Downunder35m and Toga_Dan, it's a good bet that I'll need to "Frankenstein" this thing. The real issue is the 1/8" dia brass nipple at the top of the switch. There is a brass knob that attaches to this on the outside of the lamp. Modern switches appear to use plastic now. The brass knob won't work well, or for long, installed that way. I really appreciate the helpful responses. Instructables is a great community!
Not the same. Thanks for the suggestion. Unfortunately, I cannot use a modern switch for this set-up.
I got it! Fun and rewarding project. Make it easier by buying your square and round dowels at your local home improvement or hobby shop. Thanks for uploading Paoson.
Did you ever mention how tall the bench is? I'm tall as well and would like to know. Thanks brother!
