I'm currently building a 8020 frame that need to move an 100 lbs payload vertically about 1.0m
The load normally sits about 0.5 m above the ground. Once in a while it needs to be moved to 1.5m above ground.
I bought couple linear guides from a surplus shop to limit the Z-motion but that's as far as I got.
I know I need something like linear actuator ... but I want to spend < $200 this feature.
Could the forums gurus recommend something inexpensive to move this load 1.0m
Accuracy, backlash, etc. is NOT an important part of this design.
