Default A quick little machining project

I purchased a magnifying desk lamp several years ago at an estate sale, no telling how old it was when I got it. I was adjusting it while using it and it popped and fell on the desk while I was using it.

The plastic part that the lamp pin rides in broke off.

1 held together
2 come from together
3 I see one in the lathe
4 Ta dah!! I knew it was in there
5 It fits and works like a charm.

Indeed. That's about my favorite style of project as well!

I've had more than one of that type of lamp from different makers. The clamp is always the thing that seems to fail. I've always trashed it and then waited for a new one to turn up at a yard sale.

Mine failed in the same place. My repair wasn't quite that nice. Flat washer welded to a small piece of pipe. But I put lots of paint on it.

I was very lucky to find this lathe. 11 Cents a pound.
