Red face Work Table

Over the last couple days I built this adjustable work table in my garage. It seems that every time I start to work on the BobCat, I find something to divert my attention. Oh well, this one should help get me motivated.

Just talking about something like that with someone, nice Idea.

What's the lift capacity thar?

And is that a beer holder laid into the northwest corner...?

Nice.
And the timing is amazing because YR and I were just discussing this offline.

It's a 2000 lb. worm gear winch on it, but I would not try to put that kinda weight on it. Weight-wise the limiting factor is probably the upper post mount. It should easily be able to lift an entire snowblower. It's a relatively light duty unit that is meant to save my back from bending over all the time. I can run it up and down with my 18v cordless drill with the weight of the Briggs on it. I have 5/8" jam bolts on the table so I can lock it down to remove the "wiggle" factor. I had to add a roller top and bottom of the platform carrier because it would bind whenever I tried to lower it.

I'll need a bigger beer mug to fit that hole, lol! I cut that hole so I could lay the BobCat case on it's side with the axle still in it. I plan to eventually make a shallow drain pan the same size as the table (24"x36") with a drain in that corner.

A stronger design I was considering was to mount a pulley sheave inside the tube at the top of the post. You could then run the cable over it and back down to the table carrier. This would double the winch capacity but cut the speed in half. I figure for my purposes it wasn't necessary.
Edit: I just put my simplicity 8560EI and even the cordless drill could raise it. By hand it was effortless!

Ha, I have 4 accordion type slabs, laid across 4 saw horses, cinched down with two ratchet straps.

Garage:
MTD....2 stage(modern 8.5 HP) not my favorite
Honda HS622 TA-B - acquired at an auction- nice machine for it's size.
Toro S-140- Picked it up on trash day... it runs, sort of.
Yamaha YS 240 TB "Ricky" latest Craigslist find- on the bench now.

Might consider a ramp, mounted to a hinge. Similar to those that have on automotive lifts. When the lift raises, the ramp drops down, and flips up to become a stop.

Might also consider outrigger legs, to take some of the stress off your ceiling mount.

Great idea, and nice design though!

I added a 1/8 aluminum top to it, so I can use it to weld on. I also made a drip pan that fits on top for any messy jobs I might encounter.
