No one said it couldn't be done... yet... here it is!
(The bike lift I wanted but was afraid to make)

I can't believe you used a spring washer in the middle of winter. Shameful.

I just dig a hole next to wherever my bike breaks down and stand in that...a good shovel is only $10

there are 2 types of people in the world:

1: Those who think building a scissor lift is a good idea
2: Those who have built a scissor lift

That seems like a lot of work just to lift some scissors.

"Use it to pick up girls"
Just ask if they are interested in scissoring.

"I'm probably never gonna build another scissor mechanism in my life".
Really? How will you live without the life-saving extending boxing glove? Come on, you KNOW your life is not complete without one.

"do ya ever worry that you'll go to sleep, not wake up again, and never know it?"
That's the dream, Tony. Not the worry.

"It'd be really convenient to be able to drive this thing from the side of the bike."
Is it too unstable to just turn the lift 90 degrees?

This is the only machining channel my husband forces me to watch, that I actually enjoy.

Turn it sideways ;)

"...….and not on purpose this time."

I wonder how many actually got that one? Edgy yet hilarious....sort of. LOL

Huh, when a girl asks you to lift her up it's considered 'rude' to break out the scissor lift, who would have thought?

Although I admit all the orange lights and the hard hat might have been a bit overkill.

It's a trials bike isn't it? Couldn't you just make a tall stool and jump on it when you need to work on the bike?
