Have recently acquired quite a bit of Texas Tower Mfg. (in Irving, TX not Richardson) 10" face aluminum tower. Construction method used for this is:
- Legs: 1" x 1" aluminum angle stock - Braces: Stamped/punched out of 18 ga. aluminum & riveted to legs
Apparently I'm not the only one who's seen this stuff, since there's at least one other posting in the archives referring to this tower product line. What I would like to know, for this tower design, is:
- How were the sections joined? - How were guys attached? - What was used to mount it? Hinge base? J-bolts? What?
This stuff is far too light to use as a real tower (and there's no way I'm going to climb it) but it's gonna make a dandy wire antenna support & maybe even a 1/4 wave vertical if I can ever figure out how to get it together.
Would appreciate any/all info. Thanks.
