keeping posting your progress, Ron. I also am curious to see how this turns out. As this could be applied to other tool tables around the shop. From what I have seen much on the internet about raising platforms/tables, is that at 1/2way point and max raised point, there will be noticeable wobble. From your picture, it looks like you will have 2 slits per column for clamping down at required height, which should knock out the wobble issue. But then, you would have to walk around and tighten all those knobs upon raising and then lowering.

I was thinking of having multiple torsion box flip topped “lids” lined up in a row for router table, mitre saw, jointer…etc. To have all the beds lined up to the opposing torsion box lids. I hurt my brain thinking of the mechanics and physics involve, and gave up for the time being. I am going to research using a parrelelogram structure to raise and lower each machine (tho only 6-12”).
