Just wanted to share my latest and tallest welding project. I made and installed this tower for my father´s farm wind turbine. I is 49 feet tall and has a square section of 16 inches. Weight is 400 pounds aprox. I built it with my CST 280 using 1/10" dia 7018 rod. Mains are 1" 1/8 steel angle and the cross memebers 5/8" angle. I supports a wind turbine of 0.4 kw peak power that feeds a 12 volt DC system. This week end with a 10 to 15 mph wind the system charged the batteries at 18 to 25 amps rate, not bad!
Hope you all like it.
