are you saying that the small coil of 1/2" copper tubing hanging in my
garage would be a better grounding conductor that my heavy gauge solid
(I can never remember if the soft copper tube used for water is K or M. I
think M).
I think it's 1/2"OD.

I could easily flatten one end for clamping to ground rods.
