    Has anyone made a TV lift before?

    We're about to redo our kitchen and I quite like the idea of hiding the TV in a cabinet but then having an actuator to bring it out of the cupboard.
    Having looked online though ready built systems seem to go for crazy money!

    The tricky bit I think is the runners/slides rather than the actuator, anyone got any tips?

    Leadscrew would be better, or a small chain drive driven off a worm gear.
