Well then post what you come up with, don't need this dummies advice
So you take a bottle jack or a floor jack and attach it to the frame of the LT15 and voila, a hydraulic toe board. But what is it that keeps this very functional toe board from being elegant?
1. If sitting on the floor or dunnage, it gets in the way of sweeping up the pile of dust and chips under the mill. 2. Bottle jacks in my experience are strong, but slow. They only move a small amount with each pump. The pump handle also need to be used from the operator's side. There may or may not be enough room to get the handle in and use the full stroke. If not, that would not be elegant. I'd rather have a toggle switch mounted on the mill near the front end so I can hold the tape measure with one hand and the toggle with the other to move the log end up and down til I'm satisfied. That would be elegant.
