Thanks Guys..I should be able to get the axle and bearings for next to, if not, nothing..I have access to a drill press..but not a metal lathe.

I have a couple friends who will also do any welding I need for this project for free.

The block and tackle idea sounds interesting..if you have any photos ar drawings or a link that may help, I would like a peek.

What would your ideal table top area be, for a machine like this. space is not a factor, I have an empty garage-sized building for this.
