Does someone have engineering drawings for a gas-spring lift-assist assembly (horizontal platform)?
I have a long-dormant project for a "powered" tricycle carrier for a car trailer-hitch. It occurred to me today that a piston "lift-assist" device could do the job. I wonder if anyone here has a technical design for a lift-assist assembly that I could use to understand the mechanism better. I need something that provides lift assistance both raising and lowering (maximum 10 lbs user force either way, for a ~50 lb load).
