lifting base / platform Answered

I need help on building a small 6 x 6 in lifting base. I'm trying to build a small lifting base to lift up a network camera to a certain height and then turn off once it reaches the desired height. If someone can help me I would be very grateful. Thanks Ecusta

Kelseymh, Thanks for the info. I will look into these vendors and see if they have anything I can use. Any thing that would be motorized. Thanks Ecusta

Look for "laboratory jack" on Google. Cole-Palmer, Fisher, United Scientific, and any other laboratory supply company will sell them. I think what you want to do is hook a lab jack to a servo motor (take off the knurled knob), which presumably would then be connected to a networked computer with appropriate software.
