Been looking for a pair of 10 ton single acting rams in items wanted and "spanners" spotted some on good ol ebay! cheers buddy :tup:
Anyhow,the point is that im sick of scratching around on the floor with mi 53 year old knees so the next project is a scissor lift.
I only require a 3 foot lift as my workshop height is limited but 3 foot will be ideal :) total spend should be around 300 which is a saving of 3000 and will be quicker in operation and very robust ;)
Heres a pic of a similar one which is a very close design
