I’m looking at my garage and realizing I don’t really have the space to set this up horizontally, but I have an unfinished garage with exposed 2x10 beams, making it perfect for mounting vertically. This will of course change the load distribution quite a bit, with most of the weight on the top and bottom conduit rails. I’m thinking I could drill into the bottoms of them to add a few threaded rods, which I can then more fully support from below. It seems like I might even end up with less flex this way, since the vertical gantry rail would completely support the center piece.
Has anyone done this? If so, how did it turn out?
