Morning, and thanks 'Brew'...yes the copper tubing is the soft kind, that piece was about $33 ! The steel conduit would be easier to weld, but harder to make the small radius bend, and the electrical supplyers bender makes a bout a 12 '' bend. This copper tubing bent really easy using the spring tool ( I don't know what it's called ) that you slide over the tubing, to keep it from getting any flat spots, and bent it around a small gas (welding ) bottle. The hardest part was getting the solder to hold to the sheet metal. I'll take a picture of the back side showing more of the 'welds ' .....
