Soft copper can be, but your heating element is hard copper and very thin hard copper at that.

: : If you try to oversize it, it will probably stretch and tear.

: Thanks again, hj. I seem to have misunderstood. I was under the impression that soft copper could be swaged to fitting size so that sections could be joined without couplers.

: I'll take your implied suggestion and simply swage it back to round. Thanks, as always, for your sage advice.
