Getting there and looking good. Now itís time to get the wire wheel out before the surfaces get to full of welds and things.  :coffee:

So, there's the finished mechanism.


Time to come down off the trestles, some temporary foot-plates under the jacks and the top deck resting in place.


The big moment arrives, time for a load test.
Not risking my precious motorbike to the thing just yet. So searched the shop for some random pieces of assorted heavyness.
The welder weighs about 60kg, the big leg vice about the same. So with the other bits and bobs it should be getting close to the mass of my Suzuki.


And all of it wafted into the air with ridiculous ease.


Too much ease if anything. That foot pedal can easily be half the current length. Doesn't need as much leverage as first though. The lowering control needs some re-design too.

Onwards and upwards...
