    I know this is most likly overkill but, I can get from a buddy 3-10' pcs 4" threaded alu. conduit.
    With guy wires or support against my chimny , does anyone see any reason why this wouldn't be strong enough for a tower. As you can see from my posts (or lack of )I'm fairl new at this and am only trying to support a small pm motor and a set of 3 24"WN aluminum blades. At some point in time I thought about building a generator simular to the piggott design which would then be a bit heaver. Thanks in advance for any input.

    Should be fine for the small PM motor and 24 inch blades.
