Another place to try for material to build is your electrical distributor or 
fastener wholesaler. They carry channel mounting systems ( TM. Unistrut, 
Kindorf, Erico) that you can mount channel to round or angle shaped legs. I 
have used the pipe straps and channel on rohn 25,45, 55 round legs and a square 
clamp for hdbx and trylon type towers. You can get the channel and clamps in 
plated, galvanized, aluminum, and stainless steel.
  I've mounted rotors and antennas this way for twenty years and had no 
failures.Just be sure to use a locktite type of compound to prevent nuts from 
backing off in wind vibration conditions.
  They have fittings that will allow you to build about anything you can 
imagine out of various combinations of this stuff. I have even thought of 
welding up some of the 20 foot sections of channel in a triangle or square 
tower and use the channel for a trolley in a hazer type of configuration. In 
stainless this would last forever.
  just 2 more cents to add to the pot
