  A 499 MHz parallel bar superconducting deflecting cavity has been designed and optimized for a possible implementation at the Jefferson Lab 12 GeV upgrade. This paper will present the analysis of the mechanical characteristics of the cavity (pressure sensitivity and tunability) and will detail the fabrication process. The unique geometry of the cavity–which is currently being fabricated at Jefferson Lab–and its required mechanical strength present interesting manufacturing challenges.
