Thanks from Scott and I for all the good discussion on reclaiming the old
We are definitely not planning to re-use the bolts since they have been up
and rusting for so long. Those crappy Rohn bolts on my new tower started
rusting in less than a year!
I will recomment using Stan's (W7NI) mechanically galvanized tower joint
The rust on the tower braces is only minor surface rust, therefore I feel
the integrity of the tower is fine.
However, the bolts are more extensively rusted. Although I believe they are
strong enough for a safe dissassembly, I consider them completely unsuitable
Good comments folks - keep 'em coming!
