Overall good product just a little tricky to put together. The holes in the table that attaches to the lift would only line up if mounted to the outside of the wings of the lift not on the inside as the video suggest which through us off. After is was finally put together everything seems strong. Getting the table part that hold the sewing machine to be spaced equally from the opening after attaching to the lift is much more difficult than it looks.
Put together carefully and it looks & works great! However, it does REQUIRE TWO healthy PEOPLE to do it. The instructions seem like written by at least 3 different people. Different clarity and definition. You may need a magnifying glass to see the drawings. (Which are most accurate.)
