Cool idea, but thinking hydraulics might be cheaper and easier...
Then you could only use it for that tool. I was thinking of a multi-tool holder-downer.

I like the bender up high. It helps to bend manual, and its easy to see everything. Now if I could just get the darn chop saw of the ground and up high...
