Design diy ceiling mount for heavy cabinet

  1. May 26, 2017 #1
    im wanting to hang a cabinet off an I-beam (steel) in my basement
    looking at something like this http://www.standsandmounts.com/ioni...gedextendingceilingmount-luna-ceiling102.aspx
    function wise, but also want an up/down (range of 2-3ft, from touching ceiling to droping 3ft)

    the cabinet itself is a repurposed deep well window, and im sure ill need to
    make a metal frame for it to set into for support and mounting
    i expect it to weight less than 150lb when loaded, but i never weighed the window
    so id like to get as much weight support for the dollar i can

    but i dont have 100$s just lying about to throw at this project

    please help me figure out what parts id need and projected budget

    Cheapest would be a rope, pulley and counter weight system.
