I would like to hear from those of you that have managed to retrofit a motor
onto the crank of a manual crank up tubular tower, such as the US Tower
MA-550.  What kind of approach did you use and where did you get the
parts... At this point, rather crank then spend $1700 more... maybe I'll
feel differently in a few years...!

I am thinking of some sort of chain or belt drive that fits onto the crank
shaft and a reduction motor that perhaps slips with too much resistance...
