    Hopefully start work on this project next week, ive come up with a design for the telescopic part and ordered 20 bearings, main importance is no movement unlike a ham radio tower,

    The bearing will fit inside a cage made from four pieces of box section this will also be part of the hinge and leveling system, box section will run through the rollers and hold it 100% stable with dish on the top :).
