Thanks for all the input. I think the reciprocating saw sounds good to me...
seems like the worst that can happen is a cut on a finger... rather then a
finger cut off ... shard in the eye... etc, etc. I've got a brother-in-law
who has a saw although I might use it as an excuse to buy a new tool.
btw - not real sure why the tower folded. It had a kt34a mounted about 2'
above the peak. The tower was pretty old... I bought it a couple years ago and
I'm sure it was at least 15 years old then. And, this was a freakish storm for
around here. The paper was talking 60 to 70mph but most people thought it was
more then that. It really seemed like there was kind of a micro-burst of wind
that hit some areas that had to be way more then 70mph. I say that cuz there
were little patches that seem to get blasted.... groups of a dozen trees down
in the middle of a whole bunch of other trees that had no problems. Here, as
soon as the initial blast hit I suspected I might have tower trouble... just
tooo much wind to think it could make it.
Thanks again for the good advice.
