I have this table saw I use once in a blue moon. I would like to hoist it out of the way to the ceiling of my unfinished garage. Is there a system to hoist it out of the way I can buy? Those racor things?

How heavy a saw?

Cabinet saws can easily go over 400 pounds.

They make a pulley and rope gadget that's designed for bicycles. The rope is directed over to a wall and you pull it from there. With pulleys it is very little effort. One or maybe two of these should be able to handle a lightweight saw. They cost under $20. Look up bicycle hoist.

Maybe you can check Ebay for some useful and handy stuff.
