Springfield Three Stage Pedestal

Ok, a couple pictures after running it up and down a full stroke. Motor not real loud, more a hum than a buzz. The black brick on top of the base is a gel cell battery providing power. For scale, the table mount is about 12" square, and the base is 12" diameter. It has a pin in the column so it cannot rotate. Probably necessary to make it work.

It looks and sounds decent. Not real fast. Probably at least a minute to go up and down, but that could be the well-abused battery needing a charge.

Extending wires will require cutting and splicing the black and green wires to the limit switches in the base. The control switch needs 12 volt and ground to the red and yellow wires. If its going in the wrong direction, just flip the switch over. Simple. Click image for larger version

I just read today that the special edition Airstream Land Yacht has a power dinette table made of solid wood. The photo showing the table and pedestal looks similar to yours. I wonder if Airstream isn't using the same pedestal.

I had seen pictures of a square pedestal in some Airstreams, also electrically powered.

All I know is that I think I can make this work neatly in mine. I've had the problem that the dinette tabletop has slipped off the edges of the seats in the down position. This pedestal should prevent that problem by supporting it firmly from the center in the down position.

Looks great. What are the measurements when compressed?

IF the motor were to ever fail, does it look like something you could replace?

It's 17" tall when down. Motor looks unique to it. Has a big 90 degree gearbox on it as well. It looks to be heavy duty.

It sounds quiet enough that it may be ball bearings in it.

I don't think it would be easy to find...
