When you posted the this link, it got me thinking. I had actually seen that video before, but hadn’t saved the link. Watching it again, I built on the concept and have now sketched out a design that I think will lift a heavy workbench 1” off the ground onto 4 swivelling casters. It won’t involve me doing a lot of cranking, just moving a single lever through a 30 degree arc.

Although I am pretty confident it will work, I need more convincing, so the next step for me will be to build a prototype. I’m not promising anything, but if I get time over Christmas, I’ll give it a go. If it works, I’ll shoot some video and post it.
