I'm looking to buy 20 or so feet of antenna tower so I don't have to weld one up. Anyone got a line on some?
Keep a search for "Rohn" truss tower on Craigslist. Every so often, as cable becomes more popular, people give up their TV antennas. You may need to help them take it down, which would lower or eliminate the price for you. Relatively easy to do, one section at a time, starting at the top.I'm looking to buy 20 or so feet of antenna tower so I don't have to weld one up. Anyone got a line on some?
Thanks for the offer, but that is a wee bit smaller in width than I'm looking. Dan and I are gathering the parts for a full launch trailer. I plan to make it sturdy enough to launch 300# off of it if we wish.I have a short piece mounted to a plate, might be a start for whatever you have planned. We are cleaning up around here, I would let it go for a song if you came over and took it away...
The part number for the 3.0 meter (9.84') aluminum F33 Global Truss is TR-4081. It has individually welded side bracing. They also offer a cheaper F23 version (TR-96106) with a continuous bent aluminum rod for side bracing (similar to the galvanized Rohn truss). They are pretty pricey at retail, although you can shop around and find big discounts online. And yes, shipping is also pretty horrendous for these oversize items. Wood & Brasswind (another music store) also offers free shipping, but to your door. (Mine came today.)When searching for a bit of tower, we found that our local "Guitar Center" could get us an aluminum truss used for stage lighting.
Best part was their price included shipping to their store....which is a major cost saver.
Worth checking out.
