Hey our team is thinking about using a telescoping elevator this year, but we have never done this before so any information sites for ways to do this would be very much appreaciated.
Thanks in advanced

That's the concept behind telescoping elevators - drive the first section up and it lifts the second section (and so forth).
An easy way to build something like this is with 80/20. All the sliders, fastners and rails you need can be found here. (http://catalog.item-international.com/Onlinekatalog/index.jsp?sprache=EN)

What method do you plan on using to drive the elevator? I am currently leading a design that is a pseudo-forklift style lift. Is that along the lines of what you are after?
