Good idea, Glen!
I keep a couple of bottle jacks in a plastic pail for leveling our camper when setting up at a campsite. If those jacks are not stored upright, they leak. And my jacks are all high quality Taiwan units ;-). If there was a way to actuate all 4 corners from one central jack, I’d be quite happy! But I’d kinda lean more toward air than hydraulic, though either would have the design benefit of equal pressure at all 4 corners. Kinda brings me back to the pallet-jack kind of thing, but I really want my finished project to look like a nice frame-and-panel piece of furniture when it’s done, not some Rube-Goldberg contraption. Did I really say that?
