Not sure how good the idea is but, lead screws with a belt between them, possible multistart screws so they go faster, or just pulley's with a gearing difference. How much weight are you thinking would be involved? I looked at gas shocks as a balance for the weight of the table plus computer etc.
I'm going to buy some leadscrews soon, I can throw more in if you want some to use to prototype. These aren't multistart so a multiplier would be in order to reduce the number of turns you'd need to make, unless a motor's being used I guess.On sale for $18.29 for 6 feet
