no bach. but its a taz 3 times. o.c. 588, y.d.120 (approx. you can find that one thru pesachim 22), and ch.m. 2.December 31, 2010 6:16 pm at 6:16 pm #724953smile66Member
More than once when I moved the turning part, the whole lamp would move, like it would slightly rock a little at the first push. I tried being careful with it but sometimes it moved anyway. So now I’m afraid to use it. Rather sit in the dark or leave certain lights on than risk moving the lamp again. Not worth it. So I have one, but it’s stashed away somewhere.
Anyone ever have that problem too or is it maybe just that mine was defective?December 31, 2010 7:32 pm at 7:32 pm #724954oomisParticipant
Thank you for the clarifications on the muktzah issue. I used the lamp, because my Rov assured me it was permissible, but it still felt funny to me to TOUCH the lamp cover.January 2, 2011 1:58 am at 1:58 am #724955
“but it still felt funny to me to TOUCH the lamp cover.”
Actuly there is no issur to TOUCH muktza only to MOVE muktza.January 2, 2011 2:00 am at 2:00 am #724956
“More than once when I moved the turning part, the whole lamp would move, like it would slightly rock a little at the first push”
My lamp is very heavy, now I relize why.January 2, 2011 4:28 am at 4:28 am #724957oomisParticipant
My parents taught us not to even touch the muktzah item. I actually used to think the word muktzah meant Don’t touch. I would never touch a car on Shabbos, to lean against it.January 2, 2011 5:01 pm at 5:01 pm #724958Tzvi HirshMember
If you remove the top part of the lamp and put a generious coating of Vaseline on the bottom rim of the top piece it should turn more easily. This should decrease the friction which causes the bottom to move.
Check with your Rav before doing this since there might be some Halacha reason why this was not done by the manufactor.January 3, 2011 10:00 pm at 10:00 pm #724959
Can someone tell me why is costs about $39?!
it is a great thing but overpricedJanuary 3, 2011 10:37 pm at 10:37 pm #724960charliehallParticipant
“it is a great thing but overpriced “
If you think it is overpriced, start manufacturing your own version and sell it for less.January 3, 2011 10:39 pm at 10:39 pm #724961charliehallParticipant

HaShem told Adam Rishon not to eat the fruit of the tree.
Adam Rishon told Chava not to touch the tree.
Chava touched the tree and nothing happened. So she ate the fruit and something did happen: Humankind fell because of a chumra.January 3, 2011 11:19 pm at 11:19 pm #724962

there is a paten on itJanuary 4, 2011 12:19 am at 12:19 am #724963
$39 for a specielty item is not overpriced. Any lamp you buy in a lightning store (not walmart/ home depot) will cost that much.January 4, 2011 1:36 am at 1:36 am #724964smartcookieMember
My lamp is quite a few years old already. Great quality. I don’t think it’s overpriced at all.January 4, 2011 2:45 am at 2:45 am #724965JustHoldMember
I like the old model better it’s heavier and nicer and with the cover off gives plenty of light. The new model has a new design and a larger hole, but moves too easily.January 4, 2011 3:43 am at 3:43 am #724966ItcheSrulikMember

How capitalist of you. 😉
Mine is one of the earlier models with a lighter base so it moves all the time. My solution is to lift the cover out of the lamp, turn it around and put it back.January 4, 2011 11:29 am at 11:29 am #724967Tzvi HirshMember
There only is only a small market for this in the frum world. No one else would need one since any table lamp will do.January 4, 2011 2:46 pm at 2:46 pm #724968gavra_at_workParticipant

Thanks Haros, you are correct.
A Taz, not a Bach.January 4, 2011 6:39 pm at 6:39 pm #724969
in Isreal there is another company that makes the lamps and is cheaperJanuary 4, 2011 11:41 pm at 11:41 pm #724970
i have a kosher lamp but its still in the box. i dont know if it is milchig or fleishigJanuary 5, 2011 1:23 am at 1:23 am #724971bein_hasdorimParticipant
We were actually way ahead of them. Before they ever invented the kosher lamp we were fixing up our home & installed fluorescent light fixtures in all our walk in closets. When you open the door there’s light, close it no more light. You get the point.
So when they came out with it we were like too late guys,
but it’s still cool for traveling.January 5, 2011 1:25 am at 1:25 am #724972bein_hasdorimParticipant
mewho; Relax! If it’s still in the box it’s pareve.January 5, 2011 2:59 am at 2:59 am #724973
🙂January 6, 2011 2:11 am at 2:11 am #724974
so the question is are your closets milchig parve or fleishig?January 6, 2011 4:12 am at 4:12 am #724975
and what about pesachdik?January 6, 2011 4:16 am at 4:16 am #724976
It’s only R”Ch S’vat and we still have 2 adars, so why talk about Pesach alredy?
