One night while semi-asleep I knocked the lamp off my bedside table, sending it to the floor and breaking it into several pieces. I couldn't weld it back together so I made one that I could weld if it ever broke. I used a piece of chain and wrapped it around a pipe and welded it to make the base. Then I wrapped the rest around a 2x2 and welded all the links together. I had to add the 1/4" rods to the base because it was unstable after welding, this provided the needed stability. I used the socket and cord from the broken lamp to wire up the new one and then painted all of it. I used my MM140 and fluxcore wire to make this. I think some of y'all might want to build something like this for your self or somebody you know, or maybe make several.
