    Wow! Imagine what the neighbors would think if you erected a 36'-4 7/8" whisk out in the yard. Wonder if you could use a slightly larger beater for a reflector and a slightly smaller one for director? What would they think if you pointed it in their general direction?

    I have a set of these that I have used for years.
    I used to do a lot of electrical work in a food processing plant and they are great for punching holes in control cabinets for start/stop buttons and controls.
    That set and a couple of step bits saved me hours of work.
    Hole saws are great for drilling through wood for vent pipes and such , but suck for control cabinet work.

    I've ran a TS Hot Plate on a Wilson 3' silverload with no problems and excellent reports.
    It wasn't an everyday antenna but did very well. however i had a ball mount on the roof with proper grounding.
