Made myself a Lift Table today

I had a fixed height table that I've been using with a winch on one end but it's a pain to put up ramps and winch stuff up on it to work on it. I've been searching for lift tables to replace what i had and was almost ready to buy one of the black widow lift tables. A couple days ago I see a 2500lb industrial lift table on craigslist for $400. Long story short yesterday I brought it home for $350. Today I broke out the welder and went at it. Six hours later and a total of $460 in it I've got me killer lift table! You cant see it in the pics but I welded angle iron to the side of the main table and the frame I made sits on top of the angle iron. I bolted the frame to the main table. I made it that way in-case I ever moved I could unbolt and take off the top. Only thing left to do is decide where I want it and bolt it to the floor. It raises anywhere between 7" -45" off the floor. Forgive the quad pic, it was close so I tried it out. Tomorrow the HONDA big red hits the lift to start a rebuild. What do yall think?

That is awesome! The shop manager paid I think $1100 for a motorcycle table for our small engine guy. Its nice, but is also lifts but with air.

Good project ....
How are you keeping the base stable?
Any plans for outriggers on the base? brakes?

That'd work for sure,now all you need to do is add tool holders along the sides for your most used tools to save some shoe wear..
