Rewiring? Answered

I have 2 60 year old bronze table lamps I've rewired, but the switch is loose, and the other parts also. They have 3-way switches and when I use 50-100-150 watt bulbs, the 50 & 150 burn out way too soon.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Hi estxgran2,

Were the parts you used to rewire the lamp new? Or did you reuse the old sockets?

Photos of the sockets would also be helpful for a good diagnosis. You can upload some here!
