Hi, Paul --

    This project should be undertaken ONLY if you get an engineer involved.
 Is the tower designed to be lowered?  The forces exerted by cranked-over
towers are tremendous.  Either get the factory designed unit or have the
aforementioned engineer design one for you. If there is no factory fixture
available, there is probably a reason why not.   DO NOT attempt to hip-pocket
engineer one.  Please.
