  Well stay tuned as things unfold and find out if it will lift and hold,.....or will it all come crashing down?  ;)

 I'll be doing a weight lift test first before I put the bike on it.  I'll slide it under the wifes car and see how it holds up  ;D  :drink:

Do you have a safety lock on it? I wouldn't trust that $2 jack

That's yet to be built into it (work in progress)  the Jack is a low profile jack two ton I got it specifically for this.

Looks good!

A brave man.  Might as well ask the wife to sit in her car, just to be sure....  ;)

Maybe I missed it, but how high are you planning on lifting the bike?

Jus to be on the safe side, as it appears to be quite tall, I would do just a couple more things.  You may already be planning on them, but...

I would add some diagonal cross bracing to the rear lift frame upright.  As it does look to be quite tall, I would add possibly a front and rear cross legs/feet on the main lower frame for a bit of added stability side to side.

Just a suggestion.

Looking great non the less!  Keep it going... :)

  Thanks for the input Dan,  :2vrolijk_21:

The table will have a total height of 40",...and as you suggested there's going to be more cross bracing as on the front legs, and a safety locking system. I've got a lot more to add on to it as you can tell it's still in the production stage.

   Finished up tweaking the fine adjustments today and making sure things are all squared up then completed all the welding to the lifting mechanism.
Next part is to sort out the safety drop apparatus and to have retractable wheels so it can be rolled out onto the driveway

A little more progress sorted out.  Got the mobility wheels mechanism put together.  The wheels are not for moving it with the bike on it but for rolling it out onto the drive if needed.

Today is sorting out the safety drop to lock in and how to disengage it when lowering the table .

  Cheers Howard, 

 Still have to give it the car lift test yet before I go any further.  Chucking it down with rain today so not lift test today.

Update

Back on the table lift again these past couple of days sorted out the safety drop and release.  It's nothing fancy but so long as it does the job I'm happy.

Next step is to sort out the top table. I going to have it so the front and rear wheel area can be removed.
