New Tower project
« on: September 24, 2012, 02:00:20 pm »
Next tower to put up


For scale



Each section 20' long


39.5 inches between each leg


Connections between sections


The webbing



Also the image I forgot to take should show each of the main legs  are 3 inch wide and the tube is half inch thick. (I'll get this later)

Going to need a lot of bolts


Hmm guess these will do.

Only going to use 2, maybe 3 sections. so 40' or 60' I am not sure yet which I am going to do.
Its mostly going to hinge around how I can get it up there

Anyone have suggestions how I can put this up as cheap as safely possible?

I guestimate each section weighs 500-600 lbs
