I think i have all the kinks worked out with this first build , 19-20 foot tall 14 wide (7' from pole to stakes) pole is in a sleeve 2 foot in the ground and there 16 guide wires.
I did do a trial with a full scale mock up last month with some rope and stuff i had on hand to get an idea of how to engineer it .
and this is what i ended up building, no lights on it here in this picture.
pulleys are off set to one side of the pole.
its a 2 cable system the hole way to the winch.
to keep the pole from turning in the hole when cranking the winch and wrapping the lights i came up with this gizmo.
and now for the business end the crown i was wanting to raise my tree toper with this and did something a little different here i also wanted to attach all my guide wires and light strands and raise them as well.
I have some pictures to take and post of the mounting of the controller box i did up coming soon.
and a test video when i put some lights on it.
hope some of this may help another newbie like me.
