    Why would a CNC mill be needed? It looks like to me some steel steps, some nice 3/16 angle, and some weld on hinges would make it. The angles for everything throws me off though. I've seriously been looking into this. More research to come.

    unless there all pretty darn close it's gonna be kinda wonkey,some loaded more than others, some pushing some pushing.yes a "loose" version could be done kinda eazely, but....oh never mind. I reckon a set up jig could be made and persise mesurements&location and stops it wouldent be that bad. but for me....I would have to do it a tad different.like...make a bigger shop...add a elevator/lift..or ladder like attic ladder juts a bit more beefy. or possiably 2 aluminum ladders with some links&steps to fold up. I do like this one hear,I wonder who make them or how much $$ they are.probably made is switzerland....and expensive.but dam good quality.

    Upon further thought, that folding stair would take up a lot of valuable wall space in a shop. I think a swing down stairway would work better for me.

    It is cool how the door sections fold away from the wall toward the camera. Not so sure OSHA would approve them for a fire exit ;-)

    It's footprint is a bit scarey, eye height, for some I know when it is folding into the room but I like the whole concept. Pretty cool.

    Fingers, feet, arms, legs, head. It starting to sound like a Mafia torture and killing device.
