to get at the rotator.  When fully nested it is impossible to get at the 
darn thing.  Regular fixed tower gin poles don't work.

    You need to extend the tower so that the rotator is accessible. 
Horizontal works as does vertical. If vertical, be sure to block each section 
with a 
pipe, 2x4 or U-bolt on the leg to prevent it from slipping down and it'll be 
okay to climb.

manufacturer if anyone happens to know

    They were all made in Lincoln, NE, as far as I know. They hired Clyde 
Blyleven, WA6ONZ, from Tri-Ex to design and market crank-ups and they sold lots 
of them over the years.
