Printed one of the files and it took 7 hours.

Looks good. Very solid. I used ABS

One suggestion tribal, put stiff springs in between the platen top and the top adjuster plate. It will make leveling the top easy by turning the wingnuts.

Thanx Andy, definitely will be putting springs in.
I was also trying to figure out a way to add some sort of stop to the design to limit the rotation travel to less than 180 before it falls back down to min height (off the end of the ramps.)

Thanks for the design.
Just printed them as well as a centre mount in place of the alloy you have used.
Will be testing it out in the morning but so far its together, adjusted and seems solid enough.

If it works can you share your center mount file? That would be helpful
