Hi Harry

Talking about lifts I made one for my drill press,,, it's 110 volt motor with a small gear box ,and a control box up front....

I got lazy one day and I didn't want to crank it up and down by hand any more so I made one to do it for me.. D:

Harry I thought you would get a kick out of looking at this one

If a lifter is required, a variation of Niki's lifter to suit you're particular table would be a very effective low cost addition, for dowelling I have never found it's equal.
See the link showing how I made a version of Niki's lifter.
