For a source it looks like you have one right in your town:

That said, IMHO 10' sticking out of a HAMM or equivalent is too much. Put it inside the tower down a couple of feet from the top and use a thrust bearing and you're good to go.  That's what I'm using with 10 feet of 2" OD, 1/4" wall chrome moly tubing procured from our local Industrial Metal Supply.

Hi All -

Could someone point me to a source for antenna mast? It needs to be strong
enough for my A4S and 10-element 2m beam. I was thinking 10' in height, is
that too much? I've not had an actual bell rotor atop a tower before.
Everything prior has been TV rotors on masts.
