I wanted to make two welding/work tables that are mobile, adjustable, and can be extended.
They turned out great.

I think you're going to get tired of pumping all those jacks to change heights move the tables. You could have done one per side? Or do you plan on lifting 32,000# with each table?

I originally tried single jacks, but with only one pressure point, the extension system wouldn't stay straight in the tracks and would bind. The dual jack system has a few advantages:
-Higher weight capacity (as if I'd exceed that anyway)
-Simpler track system
-Leveling ability: This is the BIG one. I can fork lift these tables out onto our concrete yard and level them really precisely because I have a jack on each corner. With a single one, they just raise or lower the whole side at a time.

Totally agreed that the system is a bit overkill though.
