B Sharp, I've got my plans for what I think will be a good tire/center stand lift work table, but saw you bought the Harbor Fright model. Its rated at 375 lbs. shipping weight. I think thats too heavey for me to use effectively. I have very little smooth surfaces to move over, and grass actually between my several possible work sites. ( I could use a refidgerator dolly, but I dont think that will help. I figure my own design to weigh about 60 lbs. What do you think, Ken

Wow, so may great ideas here. It's amazing the lengths we'll go to just to avoid buying Chinese imports. I'd humbly suggest locking casters for any table that might need moving. My shop motorcycle space doubles as a wood shop, so It's nice to just wheel the whole nine yards, with bike strapped down, into the driveway.

kenacu..................I think you might have the weight wrong there, ah.......the table is, about 100 lbs, complete, with ramp, now a bsa is in the neighborhood of 500lbs. the lift i have just fills the bill!on ease of handeling,[holds 1000 klbs] moveing it around, even when the bike is up in the air.It also has a lock which screws to , 2 wheels down so it isn`t wobbling around,on ya.I built a table, nice table .but for my money, and what i wished to do with it, [it also folds up, and stands against the wall.Ibought a centerstand first. but it didn`t go high enough, for a man with a fused back.and for $265.00, on sale my question was answered;for me. i used the center stand on the table i have. but it starts getting "tippy ".biggest thing for you is moveing it around . i looked at this lift and for 5.00 a wheel more [air tires]you can push this table to the "dairy queen" if need be.

H.I.H CHEERS Bob s :bigt:

ps--60 lbs sounds good , but with me most of my wood projects turn out like,a kid did it. :rolleyes: smile

Stevodude,
Someone will think we connived on this. Ours a strikingly similar. Mine had been so handy that I use it to store (ramp down)one of my bikes. Probably the best $20 I ever spent and actually I had all the lumber laying around and the bolts were from an old trailer project that I didn't use.

Bob, I think you have surpassed the Birmingham works 1972 production all on your own there.
Fused spine huh?
My mental image of you is getting a little disturbing.
You don't have any neck bolts do you?

Just kidding.

Nice shop!

Pete

Gunk.............yes the ole bod, ain`t what it used to be.My wife says when i die, and they put me in the box. She says, i`m going to nail the lid on, then wrap a chain around it, what fore i sez; thats so you can`t come back and build some moe stuff.yeah gunk the fused back won`t let me get with in 4 " of the floor, when i bend over,

it has so much steel in it, i can`t go thru an mri, or it would suck it all out of me. Man would that be painful.

thanks for compliment on shop. But its not big enough,they never are cause guys like us keep fillin them up.

see ya gunk bob smile

Hi

Is it possible to give me a set of plans for your bike lift . The one made out of steel . I think it is a great design and will save me lots of time in building myself one .

regards

neil

Welcome on board, fconnection.
This thread ended 6-1/2 years ago.
The last time Bob posted was two years ago. Gunk has been away for five years now.
The one Bob has in his shop looks like a fabricated lift, I presume purchased from a supplier in the USA (I think Harbour Freight was mentioned once).
I've got one like it, purchased from a supplier here in Holland. It has a hydraulic jack with foot operation
and with a pneumatic drive (preferred by the neighbourhood children because it lifts five of them in one go).

[click for a photo]

I paid less than 300 Euro's for mine.
The lifts are most probably made in China.

Do yourself a favour and do google search on motor lifts. I'm sure you'll find one in South Africa.

If Whisper in Cape Town reads this he may be able to give you a hint.
