    Quoted from arzoo:

    For those still interested, the HF 500lb lift is currently on sale for $150 ($20 off) with $7 flat rate shipping. Sale runs though the end of 2016.

    Good deal if you're not local to a store.
    I just picked one up, $169.00 - 20% off mailer coupon = $135.99.

    I think this is the on-line 20% coupon.... http://www.harborfreight.com/digitalsavings.html

    Quoted from Spiderpin:

    FYI. This is a rough estimate and thinking out loud. If a pinball machine weighs 250 lbs. Lifting on side rails would put 3.6 lbs per square inch (psi) on rails. Lifting on bottom would put 3.4 oz psi on bottom of machine and less stress, weigh is spread out over a larger footprint. Back to you regularly scheduled program.

    Except... the sides are thicker, vertical services and can sustain much more weight then the flimsy 1/4" press board that is barely sitting in a groove with a few triangle blocks for support.
    It would be an interesting mechanical engineering experiment/study, to determine which is the better jacking points on a pinball.
