Hi,
I'm sorry if this question is not relevent to this forum. I wasn't quite sure where to post it.
I am mounting a 300 watt photo bulb onto an old table lamp. I have successfully removed the lamp's original fixture. However, there is no way for me to actually put in the fixture required to power the photo bulb. It wouldn't matter if the rig is ugly-because it will be under a lamp shade.

Just wondering if anybody has any tips.

What kind of fixture is it? I take it your bulb is not a regular Type A screw-in, or else it would mount just fine in a household socket.

If it's just a regular photo bulb, then it should have fit fine in your basic mogul base household lamp fixture. What kind of bulb is it?

I use this from time to time, if I'm putting a high wattage photo bulb or enlarger in a regular lamp socket:
