i didn't want to thread jack Gene so starting a new thread. those tables in the video he shared are killer, but 'doc points out that they are pricey and I was concerned about the amount of "wobble" you see in the video.

I;d like to brain storm here and see if we can't come up with a proto type that could be built in the average shop at a reasonable price.

Conventional thought would be to make like a mini scissor lift or maxi motorcycle lift. Instead of air how could we use an electric motor and worm gear like a power recliner, or and ATV winch? I think that hydraulic would get real pricey real quick with reservoirs, pumps, yadda yadda.

I am going to work on a different approach. I am thinking of four telescoping corner post, and a cable system like a pop up camper.

Mostly, yes. It's a combo class that's geared towards students within fashion design or interior design.

I've looked up that table before. It comes out of Poland, and is around $1700 plus freight. And it's an air hog, so you'd better have a bad-ass compressor.

Aint gonna pay that kinda money for one but would like one.

Keep us posted on that class. You can never know too much about textiles. There is always something new to learn. Is this class specific to decretive fabrics?

I didn't know that red/green fade the most.
Funny thing, cus the neighbor just bought an umbrella - in red!

I enrolled in a textiles class at the local community college. Maybe I'll learn something new. There's a slight chance we'd go on an outing to L.A. to a textile mill.

Reds and greens fade the most. Like you say 65, it is next to impossible to say how things will react in the field no matter where you buy from or how much you pay for the goods. While there are some fabrics known to hold up better in the field others are not so easy to tell. Through experience it become slightly more of an educated guess on quality but by far not foolproof.
  There use to be a saying "you get what you pay for" That no longer applies to the textile industry. You can spend 10 bucks a yard and get quality or 100 bucks a yard and get junk. This is why is is best to stick with known vendors that care.

When I first began sewing, I bought a little 'outdoor' printed duck for the patio chairs. (joann) I was blown away by how long the colors lasted. As a comparison, I bought two outdoor umbrellas that were green. They faded terribly.
Extremely hard to know. Even if you're a chemist, have a microscope, and are thoroughly versed in textiles production.
