Quote have my mill under a roof now, basically a lean-to roof off the side wall of a pole barn. I'm wondering if it's possible to install some beams over the mill, spanning the 12 feet from pole barn wall to lean-to wall, and use that as an anchor to winch logs around. Since this would mostly be used to parbuckle a log or cant and rotate it, I'm not sure how much actual load I'd be putting on the beam. I tried using the midspan point loaded beam calculator in the tools section but I'm not really sure how to use it. What size beam would I need to lift say 1000lbs at the midpoint of a 12ft span?
