    What is the lift table primarily used for?

    See post #8. But I thought of a new use if I take the big handle off. . It will fit under the trailer, so if I ever need to reinstall the coroplast I can use it to lift a large section to make re-screwing the edges easier. Today It will be a work table beside my table saw. I am installing 3/4" hickory flooring and need to make some blind splines and rip cuts. Having the wood right there at table saw height will ease my back pain, - anything to save my bending over and lifting heavy things.

      Awesome Keith. I figured this may also be good for loading a generator and other items into the bed of the truck.

      Sorry to hear of the back pain. I can relate.

        Your a genius - I forgot about my 2 Honda 2000i generators and getting them in the truck. The table top is big enough I can move both from storage and lift both at the same time.

          Having a strong "variable height" table has many uses in the workshop plus getting things in and out of the truck. I also have a ramp that goes from lowest table height down to the floor. So, heavy things on a furniture dolly can be rolled up on to the lift table. Raised to truck bed or workbench height and rolled off the table (or vice versa) with no lifting.

              I think I just need to buy a bigger place, build a large metal building for all the stuff, and get a forklift.

                I have a pneumatic/hydraulic cherry picker that works well. As we age, having tools to do the lifting really helps.

                  My dad always told me when talking about building a work shop " start with 50 x 100 and add on from there", sounds big but if I had space and cash I would have built bigger than I did.
