Has anyone here tried or considered trying a tv lift to build a vertical lift unit ?

Kevin,
  There was an article on Model Railroad Hobbyist, I believe, in which the author told and demonstrated employing two vertical lift systems in order to gain enough height under a lift out panel for him to stand and work on surrounding scenery. I canít give you the thread as I have not found it a second time.
  Bill Brillinger may be able. to tell how to locate a specific thread on MRH.
  The method was straight forward and appeared easy to install. His were television lifts ,also.

Kevin,
 The article in question was actually in Model Railroader magazine, June 2019 issue. I was toying with this idea when the article came out but pricing the lift units scuttled that idea.
 Sorry about misleading you and about your funding.
