Awesome Idea, a little more then I wanted to spend, I am sure I can find something useful at a lower price point.

A friend suggested I go look at McMasters and I found some interesting options.

You could always keep it simple. Use several manageable small bags instead of one big heavy bag.

Look on "Pinterest", I think it is, or one of other such sites, and search "barn door" or "sliding door", and you'll see a DIY setup that was made, with the rollers being simple hardware store stamped steel cable pulleys .

I had followed a link on Facebook I think it was, that someone sent to me.

You can do it sturdy, and on the cheap!

Have your small block and tackle hanging from a single pulley / roller setup, with the track cantilevered to wall studs, or from the ceiling joists, whichever placement would be most advantageous.

The pulley / roller / block and tackle setup will lift right off when tot in use, and that wonderful gravity stuff keeps everything in place.


Edit:.........Try looking through this stuff http://www.pinterest.com/search/pins...iy&rs=ac&len=9


Edit again: Get after it!
