Prototype for drill press table lift, and a way to learn assembly4.

File is too large to attach ( 3.4MB).

Nice!
The image is pixelated, can you make another screenshot, perhaps rendered ?

I have been working on the details for the table lift, I cam eu with a home built linear drive. It will be controlled by an Arduino UNO.

Thanks for sharing. It looks as if in the real world you have too much torque on the belt, the pulleys are not very well aligned. You may consider another pair of bearings in the plate below, visible in the FreeCAD model.

Good eye, its just a mock up.
Waiting on bearings and real pulleys to come in.
