This is by far the best desk lamp that I've been able to find anywhere on the internet. And forget the local hardware stores and office supply stores...all of their stuff is made with cheap plastic parts that break easily.
This lamp is heavy-made, like all hardware items used to be made 40 or 50 years ago. The base is very, very heavy, so the lamp will not easily tip even when you fully extend the arm toward a horizontal position.
The lamp is made from 100% metal. No plastic.
It rotates freely at the base, and the joints in the arm flex and adjust very easily.
