      Just be sure it hasn't been treated with a plastic or lacquer covering
      to stop it from oxidizing, like some of the ornamental copper is.

      one other thing to look for in used copper is lead solder traces any where on the copper especially on the inside of the tubing. i have found some neat looking pipe that had lead solder on the inside and was almost un useable, a stainless steel scrubb pad attached to a long drill bit or rod of some sort will generally take most stuff from the inside if you do it rite or one of the new rotary flapper type sand wheels attached to a long rod extension,will do an even better job,
      happy building and good luk
