    Walkie Stacker as a lift table

    There is a used walkie stacker cheap near me. Could it be used as a lift table to get work up off the floor to a more comfortable working height. Sounds unsafe to me

    Break a few 6-32 traps off in an almost completed job and see how your blood pressure reacts. I really should clean the shop and move the heavy stuff around for a good workout.
