    I have both. Once you have a table lift you won't want to work to anything else. Has nothing to do with the table it just the height.

    It's also much safer. When I had to get the pinion nut off the engine shaft I had to put all my weight into the impact gun to keep the socket from slipping off. That nut only has two flat sides. No idea why they don't use a fricken regular nut. I wouldn't have been able to get that nut off using a different style lift.

    I know. In my racing days we brought a table with us in the bus. Been missing it ever since. Hopefully I'll find a good deal in Daytona.

    Should be able to. I know you are tight on space in that garage as we all are.

    If Kendon is there check out their StandUp chopper lift. I'd be curious to see it before I buy it, and how stable it is fully extended. It goes up to 32" which is actually 2.5" taller than mine. My next lift id like to find one that goes up to 38-40" actually. Weaver makes a lift that has 42" height which is just awesome.

    I believe this too be my next table lift when time comes.

    I'd like my scissor jack stand but I wish I did have room for a table lift.

    What are the dimensions of your stand and how much taller would you make it if you could redo it?

    Harbor freight has this for $80, I have the bike on 7/8" rubber horse pads and when I want to jack it up I just split the pads enough to put the jack between and slide it under while the tires are on the pads [​IMG]

    Recommend adding straps to that to keep it sturdy on the jack. I also throw a 4x4 under the rear tire to keep it balanced and maybe something under the front tire. IMG_0830.JPG I would rather be safe than sorry
