very nice Lsmart. if i ever incorporate a lift onto my table, i’d probably try something close to that. i can’t afford a real one, so i’d have to make one. i really like yours

@wrightly, it is working out really nice, took about a day to build (see blog) at some point soon I am going to add bearings to the shaft, some uhmw runners on the carriage and some hardwood tracks for the runners to slide in on the frame to take some of the weight. It cranks pretty good right now but I would love it to be a little smoother and taking the springs out of the router makes it rack nasty.

Have your say...
