Table pedestal -- is it worth it?

Goofy company perhaps, but a really neat pedestal. 4 way slide and the levers under the table edge mean you can raise or lower without bending down under the table to loosen the clamps like with my Springfield. I like mine (particularly that it rotates) but was fully prepared to spend more at the time - if only they would have taken my money.

Were you able to get any satisfaction from Dicor?

I certainly had no trouble ordering from Dicor on Monday. I will report back once I have it in hand.

No. Three calls, one at lunch, two messages. No callback. Thanks to PatandLinda, I've figured out that the Springfield better suits my needs.

Sheesh! Almost like playing the lottery. Some people win, most lose.

Jim, was the price $380 as others have mentioned? How bad was shipping?

Yes, the price was as per the email I posted from them. Shipping I am not positive of, they are just charging cost. Jeff guessed at about $50, but I think that is low to Canada.

Or...... maybe today.

It came while I was at work.

First impressions. The slider is fantastic. I had considered building my own, but quality parts would have cost me just as much, and this one will work great. One of my thoughts is to have the ends fold in for lounging, but with a total table width full size being around 35", the folded size would be 17.5". This slider is 22" wide, allowing 7.5" slide each way. If I want, I could cut down the aluminum slides easily to be 17" wide, which would still allow 5" travel each way. Something to ponder further once I have the trailer at home.

The pedestal looks and works great. It is round, and not too bit. Built of steel with black plastic jackets on the 3 sections, including a boot on the bottom one to cover the mounting screws. One thing I had expected, but it does not have, is infinite adjustment of height. There are 3 detents that it locks in, and with the slider on (but no table top), the heights are 29 5/8", 22 3/8", and 16 1/4". My only real concern is to match the height of the benches when making it into a bed, as the other two heights are fine. In looking down the column, I can see that if I take it apart, I could possibly drill a new detent hole at the height I desired. The action of the lever, and the pressure of the lift both seem great.

I have not weighed the pieces, but the slider is quite light, and the pedestal is not very heavy either.

Anyway, I will just be storing it for another few months anyway.
