How to Create and Install Xenon Pucks into a Bedroom Light Tier - Part 4 of 8 - Cutting the Lamp Apart

Supplies and Tools:
Aviation Tin Snips
Claw Hammer
Wood Chisel

We received a bed set with a light tier over the bed. It had side drawers tiers tall enough to hold over the mirror a bridge that housed 3-incandescent lights that could be dimmable from a switch within the headboard. These post shows how we solved the problem. 

The lamp needed to be taken apart to see if any part of the brass existing lamp could be used. This post shows five steps to taking apart the lamp.  

Step 1: Fig.1 above right shows the lamp has been removed from the platform bed wooden tier.
Step 2: Fig.2 shows that the center directional was pulled out of the main lamp. Fig.3 shows the electrical lamp cord was cut so the lamp can be separated. Using a claw hammer and a wood chisel the wire harness was removed from the metal  lamp. 

Step 3: Fig.4 shows the inner lamp and the electrical wires need to be cut from the lamp. Originally the idea was to have the Xenon lamp inside the center unit which had the function of being movable. With the electrical wires in the way it was not possible to have the middle piece be the base for the new lamp.
Step 4: Fig.5 through fig.7 shows the the middle lamp was cut out and only the electrical wires are left to be removed. The bottom wire was cut using aviator snips and thrown in the trash.
Step 5: Fig.8 shows the lamp base is void of the wires and once this lamp base is placed upside down into the wooden tier this will be the foundation of the Xenon lamps.
