CAN THIS TOWER BE SAVED?
I have a 55 foot TV type tower (12 inches on a side with horizontal
steps every 2 feet) guyed at 25 and 50 ft. with 3/16 inch guy wire.
The legs and steps are 1-1/4 inches in diameter and made of
galvanized steel. The bottom section was set 30 inches in the ground.
Apparently I left a piece of string tied around one leg at the ground
level and this leg has rusted completely through. It has separated
approximately 1/8 inch at the break.
Can this leg be braced and supported adequately so as not to
require dismantling and rebuilding? If so, how would you suggest
going about it?
