do you mean copper COATED steel rods which is what you find in the box 
stores?  I have never seen a real copper rod - certainly not in the 
last 40 yrs.

also, I have found rolls of copper flashing at Home Depot (orange box) 
used for roofing and that is about 6" wide, thickness escapes me but I 
cut off what I need, roll it on a pipe or rod lengthwise, and then 
hammer it loosely flat and then attach what is left using the clamps 
you can find at
