Swing Arm Lamp
|Months back I made this articulated arm lamp but the arms were too narrow and didn't develop enough friction to hold the lamp without drooping over time.|
I made this swing arm lamp as an improvement. It reuses parts of the original hinge with a longer central pivot.
The bottom arm has a dowel that engages one of three notches in the upper arm. The notches are only about 3/8" apart but allow approximately 20" vertical movement.
Here is a free plan. You will need to adapt it to whatever lamp you have.
