But many tables and workbenches cannot be adjusted for height. One solution is to install a Movotec retrofit lift system from Suspa Inc., Grand Rapids, Mich.suspa.com. It consists of a pump, tubing, and some telescoping lift cylinders, usually one per table leg. The pump can be motorized or use a simple hand crank. The lift cylinders easily bolt onto table legs, according to the manufacturer, and come in five sizes. The cylinders can lift up to 1,000 lb, a total of 11.8 in. The system keeps the table level despite unbalanced loads. Up to eight cylinders can be attached to a table, desk, hospital examining table, or other working surface. Work surfaces can even be tilted on industrial versions of the systems.
Adjusting the height of any table
It's much easier and more comfortable to work at a table that's the right height.
