The assembly is two steel tubes. The upper tube is 38 mm diameter (1½ inch) and the lower one is 50 mm diameter (2 inch). The upper tube is attached to the lower one using two steel platforms (PLS 50 from UKW-Berichte in Germany). The upper tube is turned with my Yaesu G-600 rotor, which is mounted on the lower platform. A thrust bearing (KS065) is mounted on the upper platform and supports the upper tube.
