I asked Nick Cook about his reported use of a hydraulic lift table to move around his PM3520's. In his response (below) he describes how he uses it to move his lathe and to load large turning blanks. Looks like it also would be good to load the heavy 3520 tail stock onto it and move it out of the way, and with an easy tail stock reinstall. Here is a link for a table with 34 1/2" of lift similar to what I believe he uses (Yellow lift in picture below): http://www.harborfreight.com/cpi/ctaf/displayitem.taf?Itemnumber=93116 Here is another rated for 770 pounds but 50" of lift from Harbor Freight (Orange picture below): http://www.harborfreight.com/cpi/ctaf/displayitem.taf?Itemnumber=41145 Here is Nick's email to me: "Jerry: Sorry for taking so long getting back to you, I have been on the road again. I got a hydraulic lift dolly from Harbor Freight for $199. It is about 24" x 30" and will lift 1100 pounds. I got it to lift logs onto the lathe for turning. I did 50 bar stools that weighed around 350 each and I added 2x4's to the dolly that extended out from the top. I was able to lift the logs to just above the bed of the lathe with the 2x4's extending out over the bed so I could roll the logs forward and mount them between centers. It worked great! I just did another project that weighed more than 1250 pounds and it worked well for that too. I had to mount it between two lathes. The dolly is also great for moving the lathes around the shop. Hope this helps, [From a later email....] I do not have the catalog numbers but, I know that they make several sizes and various weight limits. It's great to have around the shop. I bet I have sold more than 6, just from people that come into the shop to get turnings done. Antique repair shops especially like them. Nick"
