Default Tower stands

Just added up the cost to build a tower out of pressure treated. Heck with that. It ain't much more for those EMT towers.

What's the good deal on tower stands?

They sell them around here (statesboro) for 500-600 bucks depending on the height.

We had some built back in the mid 80's out of aluminum for 1000. I have 2 at my farm and one at my uncles place.

'bout ten minutes from the Lake Juliette boat ramp.

That's what I'm seein' on the cost. No point in building one when you can buy a metal one.
