I disagree that threading 1/4" copper tubing through
support holes is impossible. While it was somewhat
difficult, the results are far more attractive than
most surface mounts I've seen. I threaded 50', then an
additional 15' through eight 1/2" lexan supports with
17/64" holes, without any problem. I simply had my
wife hold the coil overhead as I threaded the tubing
from the outside towards the center. The results can
be seen at:
