Re: an interesting mechanical engineering problem

Dr. Resonance,
May I suggest a solution from my radar industry. I would use waveguide material. It can be bent in the radii you need and every joint could be a choke connector. The choke ends are surfaced for perfect fit, electrically and for holding pressure. Mechanically strong, and made to be disassembled and reassembled. C-band has an inside dimension of 1.872 x 0.872 inches and is typically made from brass. There are all kinds of flex and angle sections available, too for end connections and such. I mostly deal with the C-band and think it would handle your power as the CW rating is 1.4 to 2.0 Mwatts. I have a table for other sizes if you think you would need larger size. Let me know.
