    I also made a short movie of the panels in action.I was suprised how smooth they move.The column makes no noise and it lifts the panels roch solid.

    This was it for today and more to come. :D

    Very smooth, loved the vid. Does the column have a lower limit ? Those panels would look even better if they went low enough to hide behind the desk. The visual impact of them appearing from the back would be stunning. Love the engineering on your build:rock:

    And HOW did i miss this!?!?!?!? Fantastic work mate! Have done a little tig welding, sell the machines so need to know what im selling... :) Have also worked as field mechanic so there i used a lot of arc welding in steel but not much tig, that's is to bad because i wan't that knowledge now and need it to build alu stuff :p

    At my work we just call those rivets (the threaded ones) pop-nut :p that might be becuse in swedish the common name for a rivet is pop-nit (nit=rivet) and then pop-nut comes very handy even tho it's english :p

    do you still have some leftover pci bracket?

    :D I see you mounted a back plate cover, very clean.

    Slick adjustable arms and the new column mounting looks so much nicer. Good work mate. :)

    Didnt see it that way but your right it needs a hug. :D Thanks Cheapskate. :D

    Thanks peteski and it was allot of work. :D

    Thanks Asouter and i can lower the bracket but the dimensions of the desk are to small to lett the panels hide.

    Thanks mate and good to hear you did some welding also.Thanks for the swedish lesson and i have 2 pci bracket leftovers. :D

    Nice to know. :)

    Thanks craig and your right about the new column mounting it looks indeed better. :D

    Thanks Waynio.I am very happy with the end result and im still impressed with the motion of the lift.The panels didnt move at all. :D

    Update 8 17 March 2012.

    Today i started with the foot for the desk.Im gonna use a frame with plastic feet and 2 mount plates for mounting the columns.On top of the frame there will be a cover.

    First i cutt the pieces im using for the frame.

    [​IMG]

    Then i drilled the holes for the M8 rivet nuts and put them in.

    [​IMG]

    These are the plastic feet im gonna use.

    [​IMG]

    Then i drilled the holes in the mounting plates for the columns.The holes are 12,5mm and thats the hole i need for a M10 stainless steel welding nut.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Welded the nuts.

    [​IMG]

    All parts are finisht so now its time to put all the pieces together.

    he's workbench is a jig-table, usually used to reproduce stuff very exactly, but somtimes also used as a mountingtable for welder (as in this case) :p Downside is that they are VERY expensive... '-_-
    I guess he also have a couple of extensions to "build" things in 3D?
