This looks similar. Small enough footprint, even for my shop. The rotab and the 6" Kurt seem to get heavier with time. Raise this lift, lower Bridgeport table to the lift table, hmmm.

Yes same one but in red.

There is another which has cast iron wheels while mine has a solid neoprene rubber and it has a lever for letting the jack down which I was not sure about.

If you get one it is worth checking the oil level  :disappointed:

Many of the reviews did mention bleeding the hydraulic line and checking the oil.
Looks to be a much better deal in the UK. About 60 USD more expensive here.
Best,

Hi Bill, yes the Harrison table only comes down to 38" and once I topped up the oil in the jack this one goes up to 36" so a 2" wooden platform is going to be added  ;)

It is not bad wheeling it around extended but safety first it will be left down when not actually lifting.

I'd think that sheet steel on top of the wood would help the "slideability". You may also want something like:

too if you don't have one. Bigger machines will probably lead to bigger (heavier) parts  :stir:

I hear that at least one of the fellow MEM members has felt the need and brought himself one of these roller skates. He has over come the storage problem by using it as a stool for working at the lathe   :facepalm: not that he will let anyone take picture of him sitting on it, maybe he thinks that there is a risk that the 135 Kgs is not enough strong enough and the photo will capture him sinking slowly to the ground  :mischief:

I think if Jo adds yet more machines to her workshop the local area will start to suffer from subsidence.  I'm sure by now here workshop must be at least an inch lower in the ground than when it was built. :stir:
