THREE comealongs are highly recommended, unless you
need the aerobic exercise and have lots of time :-)
While you are at it, a plumb bob or two is nice for truing the tower.
Either attach at the center of the tower or use two supports (5-6 ft)
at right angles with a small woven cord or solid wire supporting a
pair of small weights (3-5 lbs). Sit on the ground, hands behind
you, and sight the tower.
I use old Big Grips wrapped part way for my wire pullers.
Cheap and easy.
