Homebrewing a tower especially a crank-up is a dangerous and risky proposition 
to say the least.  The ROI and the safety concerns is not worth the risk. In 
the end you will be better off buying a crank up tower. Just my opinion..
Good Luck

Anyone have an ideas regarding rails, rollers, general set-up, etc. that could 
be used for about 75 feet of 55G or 65G that would telescope into about the 
same length of larger tower (33 inch face, 3 inch legs), probably using an 
extra large prop pitch to raise and lower for 48 hours a few times a year 
dependent on good weather :-) ?

Thanks...Stan, K5GO
