I've been thinking about the feasibility of using a hospital "overbed" table as a stand for a tabletop stringer. I'm not really sure if these would be sturdy enough, but I have a couple of old ones that I use around my home and thought it might be possible to use one for a stringing machine stand. Whether they'd bear the kind of weight that some of the tabletop stringers have, well...it's hard to say. But the top could easily be modified to where most of the weight would be over the main post by adding another piece of board to the top. And they'd probably need locking wheels added. But one advantage, if one of these would work, is that you can stand very close to them, much in the same way that a regular stringer stand (as opposed to something like a utility cart) works. Your feet could easily step up to and under the actual table for closer work. Here are a couple of photos. These things are generally pretty sturdy with laminate/pressboard tops but fairly heavy duty metal framing and rising post (and even a small drawer built in for storage of tools). They can be easily raised and lowered to appropriate heights. I got these for something like $20 each from a surplus office furniture dealer. Anyway, just a thought.
