I suspect that a few people reading this will have some experience of using the Clarke pump-up masts. I have none, and I'd be grateful for any comments regarding their suitability for microwave operation.

TIA

One critical tip.

DO NOT (sorry...)  Use a mineral oil such as WD40 etc, to clean/lube the sections.

Use a Silicone based lubricant, else the seals will deteriorate (rot) over a short time.

(Dont ask...)
