Re: Harbor Freight 6000lb Scissor Lift

Why not the http://www.quickjack.com/ lift? It's far easier to move, is more portable and storable, and offers 3000 to 5000 lb lifting, and leaves the tunnel clear

Same ballpark price or less.

Re: Nice Looking Workbench Top

I used this to replace my laminate kitchen island top.
I cut it in half or so, and sanded and stuff. Then oil finished it.

You wont find it for much better price. We had to wait 6 or 8 months for
