lift table from old adjustable bed Answered

Have two old electric linear screw actuators that work great. I Need a lift table but can't figure out how to put it all together.
I don't know what width or type of metal use for the lift or the bolt hinges???.  Does it have to be a scissor lift or can I keep the actuators
where they are at each end of the bed, wire them to work together and make a lift that way?  I need an affordable way of doing this and
it only needs to lift to about 500 lbs. from 17 inches off floor to 30 inches off floor.  All framing is angle iron but seems heavy duty.
Anyone's help if greatly appreciated as I just cannot afford to spend $ 1000. + on an electric massage lift table. The pic is after everything but the motor/actuators were removed.
Thanks
Deb

I'll get back with you to let you know how it all works out. Went and
bought the lift tonight, thinking it will be just fine. Hopefully my little mig welder will finally come in handy; always wanted an excuse to play with it!

Thanks so much. Just not sure where to get the parts I need.

Would love to buy the table and use its parts. Do you think that I could put in my my electric motors for the one it comes with?
Thanks for the advice.

I'm not sure if your actuators have the same extended length as the hydraulic jack piston it comes with so that might impact the amount it will raise. If you are handy with tools it shouldn't be hard to rig up the actuators by making some adapter mounting plates with nuts and bolts. Good luck.
