    Hello all.
    My name is John Quinn. I'm fairly retired (67) and work part time at a local hardware store. I started working on lamps of all kinds about 4 years ago for customers from the store. It was more a hobby to keep busy on my days off, and is now blossoming into a 2nd job.
    I've done everything from converting pre-Civil War oil lamps to electric, to restoring ancient chandeliers and converting an old microphone stand from the Grand Old Opry into an examination room lamp for a dermatologist.
    I have been running into problems finding N.O.S. parts for customers, and thought I'd try joining this forum for advice and leads.

    Do you know of anyone that might have, or know where to find parts?
    I'm in need of E26 candle sockets with downward pull chains. They are discontinued at the supplier I've been working with. (Photo of lamp and socket attached)
