Of course, if I knew who made it I would just get the manual and do what they
say. But I don't know who made it, so...
I have an unidentified 65' crank-up tower, believed to be of English origin.
It needs to be recabled. The existing (original) cable appears to be 5/16",
but it might be 8mm or even 7mm (I am not where the tower is, so I can't
measure it exactly). Definitely bigger than 1/4". The tower lives in a very
salty, island climate.
I am trying to figure out what type of cable to use - not which size, but which
material and construction.
The easiest thing to find that seems appropriate is 5/16" 7x19 galvanized steel.
But, I have read that these towers usually use 6x19 LC (linen core) - which I
can find in plain steel, but not in galvanized.
1) Is galvanized the way to go in this situation?
2) Any sense of which construction is most appropriate? I assume 7x19 would be
best if I can't find the 6x19 LC.
3) Anyone have a source of 6x19 LC galvanized 5/16" cable?
