Hi, I need the name of the components in this lamp:

http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b283/appelsinbrus/lamp_zps44aecee7.jpg

I have no idea what they are called.
#1 is for centering the wire into the bottle, but what is it called?
#2, above the socket - maybe it's the same as #1 and #3?
#4 - is that called a lamp cup?

#2, above the socket - maybe it's the same as #1 and #3?
#4 - is that called a lamp cup? Because that's what it's called here in Norway.

Grommet is the word you're after, I think. I would say centering the wire in the neck of the bottle, rather than into the bottle....

Try searching for "lighting fixture parts" in "google images".

I think no. 1 and 3 are called wire nuts and 4 is a "fixture base" or "lamp canopy"...

Good luck !
