I've been researching the best way to use pulleys and/or winches to raise my soon to be built 7x10 train table in my garage. I haven't been able to find start to end instructions - just pieces.
KEN-OSCALE suggested using a Racor ceiling lift, which will handle 250 pounds. I like the simplicity, and it should be sufficient based on my weight calculations, but the footprint it uses is 4x4, and I can't figure out how to extend it to about 6x7, which is where the eye bolts will be on the perimeter of the table.
If anyone has a video, or can send me pictures of their setup, it would REALLY be appreciated. I'm chomping at the bit to build the table, but I don't want to start until I'm sure I can raise it, since I do need the garage space.
And I DO know that I should overengineer, to make sure things don't come crashing down on my car, my wife, me, or some combination of the above.
