lattice tower

I am planning to build a lattice tower to both serve as a drill platform for percussion drilling of a well then to use it for a wind mill tower for mechanical water pumping.  Please advise any vendors that can serve the Oregon area and soundness of basic idea.

Re: lattice tower

Most lattice steel towers are designed for a single purpose. So, the odds are that one designed for the windmill will not work for the drill rig, and one designed for the drill rig will not work for the windmill. One that will do both would be a custom (read that expensive) tower. The odds of finding an existing design that would work for both of your applications is unlikely.  

However, once you have identified which specific percussion drill rig you want to use (and how deep you think you will be driving the well) and an approximate size and height for your windmill, ask your question again. With some idea of the expected loads and direction of load, I might have a different opinion.
