Wasn't sure where to post this but it's "Light Commercial" I guess, Right?

After getting back into model cars I found a few things I started years ago... here's one of them I plan to finish soon:

I'd originally planned to power the lift with a screw-drive but couldn't find a motor slow enough.

Handrails, steps and safety updates soon,

Oh and a decent set of wheels

Don't remind me as I've used those things hundreds of times when I was working. It does look good though.

Thanks, guys

never thought of those motors... beyond that it would just be a matter of gearing, huh?

Nice and as for the motor you could wire in a voltage restrictor. I've found that basicaly gives it the efect of dead battery on the motor, making it wind slower

That looks really good! ... but I hate those things. Every time I told a customer to get a bucket so I could inspect their trusses they would come up with one of those. It's up and down for a short section then move. With a bucket I can do almost the whole thing with one lift. ... and, i don't like heights! Scissor lifts just don't feel safe but I will go anywhere in a bucket, despite how much they jiggle ... go figure.
