Re: Craftsman lift

I bought a lift at a swap meet that is much like the Sears version. I made a
platform of 3/4 plywood about 8 feet long by 18" wide -width of the rails on
the lift.  reinforced with several bed rail angle iron - available at most
Goodwill Stores.  with a short ramp to get up the 6" rise it works great.
Balance point is still important but with hinged plywood "legs" on either
end it's very stable. Just changed a clutch on it.
