Waveguide repair - RF Cafe Forums

Because of the high maintenance needed to monitor and filter spammers from the RF Cafe Forums, I decided that it would be best to just archive the pages to make all the good information posted in the past available for review. It is unfortunate that the scumbags of the world ruin an otherwise useful venue for people wanting to exchanged useful ideas and views. It seems that the more formal social media like Facebook pretty much dominate this kind of venue anymore anyway, so if you would like to post something on RF Cafe's Facebook page, please do.

Below are all of the forum threads, including all the responses to the original posts.

If a deteriorated waveguide has holes, can it be repaired with Gas Welding with Aluminium?

The only time I saw this attempted, it was a disaster.
I think the welder had failed to insert an inert high temperature backing sheet inside the waveguide and so the whole broad wall collapsed.

If done with care and with an inert sheet metal backing strip jigged inside the guide, it should be possible
