How do you Rethread a lamp?
In respect to this, can you fix a lamp cord?
While it's possible to cut a damaged cord and splice on a replacement, it's usually easier to simply replace the entire cord. It's usually connected to the lamp socket by screws -- all you have to do to get to the connections is separate the socket.
Also, how much does it cost to rewire a lamp? New socket, $30; rewiring lamp with retro cord and plug, $35 to $55; plug only, $20; 10-inch custom shade, $70 and up.
Similarly, can you convert a touch lamp to a regular lamp?
A touch control lamp lets you control the light by touching metal anywhere on the lamp and even turns a regular light bulb into a three-way bulb. You can make any lamp into a touch lamp by wiring a three-way touch control module inside the lamp base.
Can you splice a lamp cord?
Cut the damaged length of lamp cord away, then strip back about a half inch of insulation from those wires too. Here I've slipped the tubing into place over the splice. Twist one wire from the extension cord onto a wire from the lamp, then twist the other. Bend the twist so it's parallel with the insulation.
