I use an aluminum I-beam lag bolted into the garage ceiling as a monorail with a 500 lb. cap. electric wire rope hoist on it's own rolling trolley. I'm only lifting stuff like rotary tables, indexers, and lathe chucks so 500 lb. is fine, I could see this setup being able to lift a lot more with a bigger hoist.
