Electrical Question from Ryan about Other Electrical Issue

Question: Recommend type B 60 Watt bulbs, can I use a type A bulb instead?
Thanks for your electrical question Ryan. The Type A Bulb is the most standard size, that being a larger base than a Type B. The Type B isÂ also known asÂ a Candelabra base or a Chandelier Type Lamp because it is most commonly used in chandelier fixtures. That being the case, there are socket adapters to allow a Type B Lamp to be used in a Type A Socket, but not for a Type A bulb to be used in a Type B Socket.

The Safest Way to Test Electrical Devices and Identify Electric Wiring!The Non-Contact Electrical Tester
This is a testing tool that I have had in my personal electrical tool pouch for years, and is the first test tool I grab to help identify electrical wiring. It is a Non-contact tester, [amazon.com], I use for the detection of Standard Voltage in Cables, Cords, Circuit Breakers, Lighting Fixtures, Switches, Outlets and Wires. Simply insert the end of the tester into an outlet, lamp socket, or hold the end of the tester against the wire you wish to test. Very handy and easy to use.
