How to make your own DIY scissor lift with plans

Recently, after pondering a way to level out long workpieces when working with my small bench drill, I came up with a rough design for what would ultimately become this nifty little gem.
I operate the lift using my 12V Bosch ps130-2A cordless drill.
At it’s lower point it offers a 132mm high working platform while the small scissor lift platform can reach 300mm at its highest point. woodworking basics woodworking for beginners woodworking projects

Although this small gadget was made specifically for my drill press, the design can be scaled and adapted to be used for a number of different applications. woodworking basics woodworking for beginners woodworking projects

In this post, I will be sharing my drawings and build process for my version of a small DIY scissor lift. woodworking basics woodworking for beginners woodworking projects
