You know that favorite antique lamp that you are afraid to use because it makes crackling noises when you turn it on, or the lamp cord is all frayed and looks dangerous?

Maybe you have a lamp that just stopped working.

Rewiring a lamp is a simple DIY task that you can do in about 20 minutes once you have all the parts you need. If you are doing a complete rewire you will need:

Straight slot and Phillips screwdrivers and wire strippers  and cutters

A lamp socket, 6′ of lamp cord and a plug.

This video gives you step by step instruction on how to accomplish this task and get your lamp working again.
