Powering my trolley hoist
Just picked this up off of sleazebay, it's 20 amp 120 volt.
I'm in the middle of doing my plans, or rather, this lazy no good "architect" is supposedely doing them, that's a whole 'nother story, and I need to figure out how I'm going to power this baby up so I can include that on the garage plans.
The garage is sadly only going to be about 22 x 44 feet, the most I can possibly squeeze in between my existing structure, easement on the side, and setback at the ends.
I'm planning on two I-beams longitudinally, with another I-beam running width wise, two trolleys on either side. The winch trolley itself will roll left to right on the center I-beam, and the center I-beam will roll from front to back.
So, with the ability to pretty much slide the winch anywhere in the garage, how do I supply it with a power source that will move with it?
A power reel of some kind in the center? Flexible wiring of some kind?
Hopefully someone has done this or seen it done.
Thanks - Karl
