That's fine, I'm more concerned about vertical clearance.

I'll take a pic of my trolley after a bit, but I'm pretty sure that it all hangs below the beam and nothing goes above.

Also, a friend tried to buy one like mine from HF recently and they don't carry them any more. But he found one at Northern Tool.

This is what I have to try and help with a general idea of size. I had this for years on a similar beam in my dads shop. You can see by the wear marks on the inner roller, vertical height needed above the rolling surface of the I-beam is ~4 1/4" for this model. The width is adjustable by spacing the washers as needed, obviously the anchor point isn't centred in my pics but it was tossed together until I set it up for my new beam.

My Father-in-Law and I have finished the concrete and the studs. The Bull Pen is getting closer!

I am bolting up additional 2x4s (20' car trailers can come in handy!) onto which I am nailing additional boards, it's really hard to fit a framing nailer into there and there's virtually zero space to swing a hammer. So, lag bolts + the 3/8 air socket wrench to the rescue, I have traditionally over-engineered this kind of stuff and this is no exception....


Here, I'm surrounding the steel I-beam with false-ceiling-type of stuff and need to seal up the firewall (contains OSB) with mud & tape... the rest can be plain 1/2" stuff.

Need to leave that beam exposed, too, as it's gonna be a track for an electrically-operated accessory (how you need to describe it to the building inspectors )

Chris - I don't understand what you are doing, but it looks solid, nonetheless.

It is incomplete + too hard to hold up drywall and take a picture, this is the junction where I transition from firewall-block to non... it will make sense with a drywall box around it, that 2x4 stuff is just to have something to attach to.

Very Cool

I am very pleased that this thread has taken on a life of it's own. It is nice to see that the FTE Bullnose forum takes time to share not only mechanical tech, but also shares what makes our passion easier in the garage !

Chris....Is all that exposed 12TW Romex exposed allowed by code in the garage? In my neck of the woods...it needs to be in galvanized pipe for out building application regardless of attached or not.

Don, yes, we have Romex here.

I had 6 lights permanently installed for almost 20 years, I wired in (haphazardly) 4 additional ones just to see how many I need/where they go.

Those boxes in the first pic are coming out (already gone tbh) but the ones on the other side, those will become permanent once again... I had installed them once (one hot, one switched, neut + gnd from a 4-way switch) but then figured out I'm gonna drop the ceiling the size of a 2x4, and so I removed them and stuck 'em up there temporarily.

Lots of undoing and redoing going on, it's kinda slow (especially when working alone).

Got my first-ever, paid-for, structural engineering inspection of the house today, water drainage away from the foundation is exceedingly important to prevent this kind of chit.
