    use with caution, scissor design very hazardous. there's a reason you don't see that design around much without lots of safeguards.

    How is a scissor lift dangerous?

    Hold and lift the plank and not the scissor parts.. it wont cause any problem then?

    also, gloves, glasses, faceshield. plastic can melt/catch fire easily from sparks. sleeves down,it will block and absorb a broken disc better than raw skin. proper shields walls i think there's some instructables out there for that.

    That's a great way to make it save space when not in use :)
