I had to sand nearly all of my pipes due to some kind of impurity and let me tell you.... the epoxy white paint sanded with 500 grit would give you the exact matte white look or black look you are looking for. Its almost like sanding primer biggrin.gif. Great stuff in my opinion thumb.gif. So gentle sanding with 500 or so grit would be saweet for the look you are going for.

Nooo....I didn't try that. I honestly don't know what is up since I used that same tubing (different box) before. But following B NEG's advice, next time I do some bending I will look more closely to see if the pipe is slipping in the bender or if something has changed.
I thought that all the coiled stuff had been annealed but I obviously don't know for sure.
It could be that for whatever reason this run of tubing was thinner than what I bought before.

When I bent the chromed stuff, and the first coil copper tubing, I had no problems and it went pretty smoothly. Then I made some configuration changes and bought a 5 foot coil and it was nothing but a pita to bend, that is the little kinks and flat spots. I actually ended up using 4 foot to get one usable piece about 8" long. The leftover foot I experimented with to try and see why it wasn't working out.

Anyway I'll pick up some more tubing this week and give it another go, but I think I'll buy the type "L" coiled tubing this time. It's $8 more for a 10' coil, but considering what I've wasted this go around would be worth the extra price.
Wish I could find some 1/4" (3/8" OD) straight pipe locally. Don't know if that's even made.
I did manage to pick up some 3/8" (1/2" OD) straight pipe for the few pieces of larger pipe I'll need on the front end of the loop.

OK so I did a bunch more reading on copper pipe..... and I found what I believe is annealed 1/4" pipe at Lowes in 2' lengths (3/8" OD) as it's listed as "Soft" type L. Would be easier if they would make their descriptions a little more informative, but "soft" seems to equate to "annealed" in Lowes product blurbs.
I only need to redo 2 of the 3/8" pipes so I won't need much.
