Dude, saw your suggestion for a lifting platform, and checked out the article. Looks good. However I find the instructions somewhat illegible.
Have you built such a platform, or know someone who has? My questions are:
- Does the platform actually need a base piece that is in contact FLAT with the ground. It’s dificult to describe, but basically what I’m trying to work out is whether the centre and side-fillings are just dropped into the supporting wood outline, and have contact with the floor directly, or is there a flat piece of wood(s) at the bottom of it all, in contact with the floor and connected to the “box” base
- What’s a horse mat (excuse my ignorance). IS it a rubber mat, or one of those coarse fake-horse hair like mats that you use to wipe your shoes? I thought the latter- it seems to make sense to dull the noise, but not in the middle where a good foot grip is required!Please correct me?
Thanks for the info. SRS
