Tower id

Have a part you can't identify? Did your parts get mixed up in the shop? Curious if that chunk of metal is a part you should keep? Not sure what kind of windmill or tower you have? Post photos of the mystery object here for the community to help identify.

A gentleman in Arizona is asking for and ID on this tower. Top casting number 3732 bottom 3731. Is it a Stover?

I don't think it's Stover. X braces look challenge is my guess.

The tower is in Arizona and he's looking to sell or he will scrap it. Looks to me like it had a big mill on it.

I would definitely save the top cap & storm stay , both of these pieces are cast and hard to recreate even if there is not a positive identification yet .
The tower can be replaced with similar materials but the cast iron is more costly .
Just my opinion .

A new look at the top section of the tower. With the arms for the platform being so far down the tower makes me think even more so that it had a big mill on it at some time. He said the bottom pieces of angle iron are laying there. It is 3X3 angle.

I still say that's a challenge tower especially now i see the ladder. Tower cap is similar to dandy but the storm stay isn't stable enough. By the size of angle I'm guessing 14ftr.
