"SUCCESS! Jeezus! And the bulb is cross-threaded... I think it's more than 40w, too. Had to heat and use spudgers to break the bond. PAIN IN THE ARSE! Now, how to get the damn bulb out without breaking it?"

"Sorry for the blurry photos. Lens had a smudge. The pale one with cloudy water and the white cord is the 2 piece. The video is after it was on for 5 hours. By that point, my other lamps usually start to form the single glob and lose flow. The newer…"
