    Straightening copper wire

    I have used a method similar to the sheets of plywood for straightening copper wire.
    I place short lenghts of copper wire on a smooth flat floor, and roll the wire back and forth between my shoes and the floor.

    A few passes back and forth does the trick.
    (Flat leather sole shoes recommended.)
    It really works.

        I have heard of people filling the copper tube with dry sand so it doesn't kink that might be worth thinking about easily pours back out when finished.Alistair

          Insanely easy.

          Take a long spot where you can anchor one end, take a pry bar, wrap the copper around it and tie it. PRY it.

          I had a piece of unistrut with the oblong holes, a steel bar with a round bar welded to the end to stick in the sequential holes and pry it..

          Then I'd take the straightened copper and bend it up with instrument benders.
          Excuse me, I farted.
