Fastenal, is a good source for anchor bolts. You can either go 
to your local store or order online. Online has the stock while the stores may 
be hit and miss. As for a homebrew baseplate, be very careful. I have seen 
baseplates bend when they were made from too thin of material or the anchor 
bolts were too far from the tower legs. I would insist on a professionally 
designed baseplate assembled by a certified welder. There's a lot of force 
exerted on the baseplate for a freestanding tower. Compression isn't really the 
issue but tension is- that's what ruined the baseplates I mentioned.

gl es be safe,
