I would pay up to $350 for such a thing (it sounds too
perfect). I've been looking for it in the form of a "scissor jack"

As it is I'm going to complete a device this Thursday
It's 5 pieces of steel welded in an archway configuration, 8' high
with a 1000 lb dead-lift rated come-along at the top pulling a
plywood elevator with steel cables. Total cost: $65 plus labor.
It'll be a compromise, I expect it to lift no more than 200 lb., for
