No, it's all solid. Although it does sit a little crooked so it might appear that it bends over, lol.

No, there is a lamp that is sold seprety that youd have to purchase if you wanted the bendable neck on the lamp. You could contact mainstays to see if theres an attachment you could purchase, but itd probably be easier to just buy the lamp at the store that already has what your looking for.

No it does not, and you wouldn't want that feature in this time of lamp anyway. There are others with flexible tops--buy this one just as it is, you won't be dissatisfied.

They thread together. Be carefull they can cross thread easily. If you get any resistance before the tubes butt together, stop, unthread and put the coupling in straight and try again.

Where can i buy the 150 Watt Bulbs?

Answers
answer 1
It takes "UP TO" 150 Watt bulbs and those are generally 3-way bulbs so one twist, is low light, second twist is medium brightness, and 3rd twist of the switch is bright. If Walmart doesn't carry the 150 watt bulbs then a local big box home improvement store may carry them.

I ued the GE soft white 3-way bulb for it and it works great. It's a 50/100/150 watt but the lamp is a 150 watt lamp if you wanted to just get a single light-bulb.

I use an LED bulb so yes you can use a CFL since the heat produced is less than an incandescent (regular) bulb. There is enough air circulation for both.

Yes you can but it burns through them quicker, its best to get a 3-way bulb since the lamp is a 3-way lamp but a lower wattage does work.

Question

Can you please give me Mainstays contact information to order a part?

At the bottom of the base there is a black hollow threaded tube that screws into the pole and into the bottom base. Without this screw the lamp is unable to stand. I no longer have the product manual so I need the manufacturers contact information. Can you please help me?

Answer: I don't-have THIS Lamp yet,
BUT, Typically THAT 'Part' for a 'Floor-Lamp' Pole-to-Base
is a Standard-size available at 'Lamp-Hardware' Dept,
called a size '1/4 IPS' = '1/4-18 IPS Nipple';
= 1/2 inch OD = Outside-Diameter;
= '18 Threads' = 18 Screw-turns Spiral per inch;
'Nipple' = Threaded the whole-Length;
'IPS' = STRAIGHT Pipe;
vs DON'T 'NPS' = 'Plumbing' = 'Tapered'.
P.S. Save Lil-Parts from Lamps before You throw-away.
