    I may be alittle late on this but I bought these plans and built this table. the table is well thought out and the plans are easy to follow. It is very heavy duty and sure it is probably over kill on the material but if you are selling these plans, you know you have to cover your a$$ for liability reasons. I modified mine alittle so it will roll around on casters. Had to put some screw down feet on it to keep it from rolling away from me while I was pushing the bike up on it. Ask me how I figured that one out. I had about $200 tyied up in materials. The table "Fun" talked about will probably work fine but I was looking for a usable work table when not being used for the motorcycle. I have been using mine for a while but resently cut it up and I'm in the process of designing one more like the Kendon motorcyle lift. I need one that is lighter and easy to lift up and stand against the wall. I ended up using mine more for a work table then a motorcyle table and I think we all know that if you have an empty flat spot in your garage, stuff manages to get piled up on it. I need the space when not working on the bike. I have a bunch of alum. and recently bought a spool gun for the mig so I'm going to build the next on out of alum. and use a sissor type lift system. Saves space when in the down possition.

    Synergy,
    nice pic of the ghetto lift, hey don't know it!!! They probably found it in Woodworkers magazine
    Hey, I have a millermatic 135 and have a real hard time making a nice bead with anything over 1/8 thick! 3/16 didn't look good and I was told no way 1/4", unless I preheat the metal first. Using .030 flux cored wire. How thick metal are you welding together, wire size ?
    thanks,

    Yes, the handy lift is a Rock!!! If you visit your local Harley Dealer and look inside their shop, this is the lift that they use.

    Cost: I do not recall, its been about 5 years ago... I think around $800 with the bike vise including shipping.

    Default Handy lift

    My father has a Lawn Equipment business and he has had a handy lift for a long time. like about 15 yrs or so. With side extensions he made he puts any riding mower on it even the big zero turn models. Excellant lift. They are no more expensive now than when he bought his. His is air lift and works fine. I'd be afraid to guess how many times that thing has went up and down all these years and he's never worked on it. Except to make the side extensions and a ramp that extends when lowered and folds when raised automatically.
