I used the copper-nickle tubing to plumb my T-bucket.It bends very nicely and takes a double flare well. I use a step drill from harbor freight to de-burr and square up the cut end.The bit is the exact size to fit into the tubing.the next size step squares the end. The copper nickle has been discussed here before.It has been used in europe for years.another plus is that it doesn't rust like plain steel line.
