Default Home Made Lift Table (pics)

I made this about a year ago off of some plans I got online. I use it all the time and it works very well.

I changed a lot of things that were on the basic plans for safety and ease of use.

The plans came from www.afabonline.com.

I probably have more in it than you could buy a commercial one for, but if you enjoy making stuff on your own this is a good stable lift table.

Sorry about the big picture!

Floor jack for power?
Pretty neat and sturdy looking.
DIY projects aren't usually cheaper , just better by design.....
Congrats , looks like a winner.

Thanks Bluesssman,

It would be hard for me to estimate the build cost. I already had a lot of the steel in my shop. I did buy the wheel vise, winch, casters and floor jack.

Just a guess....$450.00 to $500.00


But remember I built it a year ago and every thing is more expensive now, especially steel.

That is my 1999 FatBoy. I bought it new and it has about 50,000 miles on it now.
I couldn't get rid of it when I got my SG. I plan on passing it on to my son someday. It has been a great motorcycle.

Very nice. I want to build some sort of table lift as well. I saw the homemade rig pictured below on another board and thought it might be cool to build just to change fluids, but yours is certainly a better project.

I really like see projects that come together as well as yours. It is great fun to build your own equipment and parts!
