Introduction
If you need a light stand for photos, this guide will show you how to take an old/cheap standing lamp to create a stand. This guide will show you how to disassemble common style lamps and which components can be salvaged for other projects you may do in the future. This is not the best stand you can get as modifications may be required, but many of these can be had for next to nothing because they are unwanted or need a shade that costs more than a new lamp. This can be advantageous if you need a low-cost stand and are willing to disassemble one. === Guide notes === * '''''Use common sense during the cord and socket removal procedure. Death or injury may occur if you make a mistake!''''' * Make sure you use a lamp that you are certain you do not plan on reassembling. Post disassembly reversal may be impossible or impractical, especially if you used a broken lamp that needed other parts. * If possible, use a lamp with a dangerous problem like a busted socket guard cover. The one I used in this guide cracked and was supported with electrical tape. These are the best candidate for this project. * '''''Use common sense during While the plastic parts on many of these lamps are not reusable due to their installation technique from the factory (and often, uniqueness), the cord and socket removal procedure. Death or injury may occur if you make a mistake!''''' and cord can be easily reused. These should be saved for another project.
