I did the same thing but used a trailer jack on my old late 1950’s Craftsman floor mounted drill press. The trailer jack is one from Harbor Freight (http://www.harborfreight.com/1000-lb-swing-back-trailer-jack-41005.html). I extended the top of the shaft with a length of pipe, cut off the mounting gear from the side of the shaft with a 4” grinder, and removed the wheel from the bottom of the shaft. Works great! Lifts and lowers that heavy table with ease and operates from the front.
