Fantastic. I plan to do the same with an actuator from Northern Tools. The same way that @Pekay did.

Smooth going   :thumbsup:
Did you also implement end switches to limit the movement (making it fool proof  :D )?

@sagrzmnky , I watched his test video, looks like a solid choice!

@henkie , yes this model has built-in adjustable microswitches.  Funny you should mention that though, I have to adjust the lower limit switch because my initial "guess" was about a 1/2 inch off.  :taz:  That means I have to do exactly what I was hoping I wouldn't need to do - pull the seat back off the floor structure and reinstall the motor again after the adjustment.   :DOH:

 :harhar:  pulling the seat back off the floor is a good exercise. No need to go to the gym for fitness training.
But thanks for letting know - I am warned to (try to) do it first time right   :D
