I purchased a used tower of which I am curious of the manufacturer. It came
in 4 bolt-together sections (10 feet ea.) with the top section coming to a
point with an 18" sleeve inside the point (2" ID I think) and a flange
around the top of the sleeve. The tower is a rather heavy 1 1/2" tubular
design. The cross arms are a single tube welded across the legs every 12".
No zig-zag cross arms. I've seen these towers being used in my travels. I'm
wondering what I could use for a thrust bearing as there are no bolt holes
in the flange for mounting a bearing. I'd like to stack a TA33 w/40m and a
A3WS w/30 on top with a Ham IV mounted inside the tower about 5 feet. Total
load would be about 270-300 lbs. Wondering if it would stand up.
Considering only going up 30' to help with stability. Somewhat windy up on
this hill. Any ideas on this model? Thanks!
