ugggggggg scissors lift. their day has come and gone. there are many better lifts that you can build that are faster, stronger, and better looking. There also isn’t really a need for them this year.

Ahh yes, there was so much to miss.

The gearing need to make it rise, the slight wobble you just coudn’t get rid of.

I don’t know, i’m just guessing, but I think we used one of the first scissor lifts back in 96. (I’ve never seen any older pictures, so I don’t know)
