I’m making a small compartment to hold my gps in my truck. I have a sloping dash and it will fit in a ‘box’ 6”x8” and 2” deep. I’m trying to find a soft lift mechinism to raise the top. The idea being to push to close/push to open with a lift mechinism. Any ideas where to find an animal like this?

I’d suggest looking into a soft lift unit from a glovebox from say a chevy truck, not a unit for woodworking.

This is simular to a jewelry box. and certainly a woodworking project.
