You saved my lamp! Thank you for this simple to follow guide.

All well and good, but isn’t it more likely that the break will be in the string which runs from the chain into the switch? This can be fixed by disassembling the switch itself - but where can one buy the right string?

On my lamp, the problem was not the chain but in the switch itself. This made it necessary to replace the entire socket since the switch was riveted to its base. I made this video which shows how to replace the socket and switch:https://youtu.be/0fLnUPWzLeI
