Hi, Tom --

     The spec is for ANY tower.  The 1.25 inches you mentioned is within
tolerance.  You've got to appreciate that towers are not precision
instruments.  They have cumulative building tolerances and remember we're
talking about some heavy steel and good sized nuts and bolts in many cases.
 You shouldn't be worried as long as you've followed the manufacturer's
