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

The garage is sadly only going to be about 22 x 44 feet
