I am giving some thought to building a pool table hoist.To raise and store a pool table from the rafters.I know this aint racing but ya'll are just as inovative(some of ya more)than me and may have done it. thanks

Make sure that your rafters will carry the load.I had a friend who used to store his slide in camper that way.He had a hand crank winch that he hooked to a sling made from 4"nylon straps.Worked pretty well.

You would have to make it STRONG , but alot of new tables use that fake slate stuff that they say won't warp .If the table is slate those those things weigh a ton (well maybe not a ton ,lol).I would think a couple of slings and a winch would about do it , ?
