yes. just add compression fitting. bend copper where you want it.
That's exactly what I'm using it for.
yes. This refrigeration copper tube all measurements are O.D. it will fit into 1/2" area.
Yes, it's quite malleable.
Its intended use is for water supply lines for a refrigerator's icemaker so liquids that pass thru it are fine. Not sure how anything you might drink would come into contact with the exterior, though.
I think nearly pure copper.
I cut mine with a light saber. ;-)
I can't think of anything better to use!
This would be too soft for the tugging and stress as a rod. Another issue would be the basic oxidation of copper and possible transfer of residue to towels or clothes hanging on rack.
