I'm wanting to put a small hoist in the ceiling in my shop with intent to lift
200 lbs with and possibly hang there for long periods of time..
Shop is 2 x 4 truss system on. 24" center (see pics)
I was thinking a wood 4×4 across the top of 4 of the trusses on top and the setup pictured with the hoist on bottom using all thread thru 4x4s and steel square bar..
The pic with colored lines is indicating direction and length of 4 x 4, steel bar with holes, location of hoist and dotted line indicates where the truss comes down and connects at ceiling level..
Thoughts? Overkill or remedy for failure...
