Mechanical lifts are used in industries from the auto industry to the construction industry to medical devices and even to make high-end shoes.
These lifts are designed to move parts, like wheels and tires, while allowing for a more controlled, quieter operation.
The main advantages of these lifts are they are lighter, they are easy to operate, and they can operate with lower power levels than standard lift systems.
This article will walk you through how to build one of these.
A basic lift assembly is shown above.
We will build this assembly using the M3-4 assembly kit.
