Re: Scissor hoists

Have also posted on Jose's thread about scissor lift.
You will not miss the trolley jack and axle stands, that's for sure.

Re: Shop lift for home use

Definitely. It's amazing what you can learn from other people's projects. I reckon I'm almost there but I can see a few things to improve it a bit. Your lift looks exactly the same as mine, so one minor issue is that you cannot lower it all the way to the floor with the bike platform on (due to the ...

Re: Shop lift for home use

I did look at a wheel chock with the cross bar and built in eyelets for tie down straps but it was twice the weight of this one. I've used eyebolts on the side of the lift mounted in existing holes instead for the tie downs. Bike is quite secure just using the chock. The straps are ''Belt & Braces''...

Re: Shop lift for home use

The lift has been multi tasking recently.
Some 2'' x 10'' and a wheel chock and the bike is at a nice height for oil change.

Re: Shop lift for home use

Jose/baders, I am planning to use a combination of wheel stands and/or jack stands for under vehicle access. Borrowed a stand (from a chassis jig) to get an idea what height of wheel stand I would need. Planning to get actual ones made up based on a flat base plate, 4 uprights and a recessed top pla...

Re: Shop lift for home use

Up and running now. Thought I'd start with a small car first. Baby steps and all that. Is the car sitting directly on the long blue plates of the rising part of the lift or some other kinds of pads? Sharkfan, It has rotating arms attached to the long blue plates which lift pad adapters can be slid ...

Re: Shop lift for home use

Hi Jose, I have now purchased a similar lift. Just got to fill up the hydraulic oil and connect the power. This arrangement will hopefully work out OK. I would have loved to get the full length (open centre) scissor lift but it was prohibitively expensive, more than 4 times as much !! I'm hoping to ...

Re: Shop lift for home use

Jose, How are you getting on with the lift ? I am looking at purchasing a similar lift due to space constraints. Also put off the open centre (center) style due to the additional cost. Was just wondering if you were able to use the high rise stands or does the lift structure get in the way ? Regards...

Re: Hydraulic Ramps!

Boggie,
Are these quite easy to move about and store when not in use ?
Was looking at various scissor lift/2 or 4 post lift for the garage but don't really have the space (or height) to utilise them.
4 off these ramps and axle stands might be a better option.
Regards,

Steve.

Re: How to prepare car for winter period

Janusz,
As you mention in your last paragraph.
Change oil and filter.
Wash, dry, wax. Overinflate tyres slightly. Fuel up to filler neck (remove ethanol and add fuel stabiliser)
Remove battery.
Cover car and place in Permabag. Put in desiccant containers and zip up.

Re: FS - UK RHD M635CSi #004

It will be interesting to see.... a) If it will appear on a dealers site for £50k. b) What figures #379 and #126, both higher mileage cars, will attain on November 25th. If they are close to the (early £20k) estimates then my feeling is that the genuine values of UK M635s (following some of the wil...
