Hey there Rob SS, what kind of scissor jack do you use? Do you have a photo you can post? I have four in fact, that I use to life up my old MG when I want to work underneath. I've also used it on the bike but it feels a little unstable on the bike. Just wondering if it's the same thing that you're referring to. This is a photo of what I have four of.
Thats the same Scissor jack I use on all my bikes and it works great on the lift table the best thing it's compact and doesn't get in the way when under the bike is very stable can be used with or without the sliding arms, the arms fit the frame rails perfect and the best thing is under $100 to buy, I use mine a lot, I don't need a jack that lifts a bike completely off the ground and no need to tie the bike down when it's being used, but I do use my tie downs when the bike is on the lift table, but as I say the scissor jack work perfect on the lift table when you need to do maintenance on wheels or chain just do one wheel at a time.
