thanks to all that gave me ideas for this lift. this is a really old DP sold by sears and made by a company with klien in the name. there was no way to lift the table except by breaking my back lifting table to the right height then leaning over and tighting the handle.
i got comments about the drill head should always be at the very top but some people are shorter and the head could be lowered for them.
I started with a oak board then turn a plug that fit in the DP post. i bolted the plug to the bottom of board then mounted the bearings and made the crank and handle and installed garage door cables to an oak board
board cut to the size of the post under the table mounting clamp. the crank rod may have to be changed to metal, time will tell.
