If someone is concerned about rust on the inside when cleaning up rusty
tower, you can always to the regalvanizing route. Down in Tampa there is a
with 40 foot long tank where they dip it in an acid bath and then
regalvanize it. They will also do any other items you may need done too, such
homemade side arm mounts, masts etc. The last time I checked the price was
$400 per thousand pounds with a 1000 pound minimum cost. With the Rohn 65 I
plan on getting regalvanized, 1000 pounds minimum is not a problem.
Other big cities may have cheaper prices and different minimums, but there's
no reason two or more hams couldn't put an order together to meet it.
The regalvanizing process addresses the problems of arresting any new
deterioration with the removal of loose rust and recoating.
