    I haven’t seen anything similar but that doesn’t mean a DIY solution doesn’t exist. The big problems with these types of lifts is getting the mechanical engineering right and designing in acceptable safety devices.

    To be honest if I had the need to put such machines on a table I’d find myself a gantry crane. Combined with a strong steel table (think welding table) you would have a lot of vesartility and safety.

    Yea,a short maybe 24 or 30" would be fine and a set of ramps to drive it up on would proly be more like it and a heckofalot easier to fab I think.Ive seen some table lifts they built with lumber but to me that's just asking for trouble!
