Hi Boxman,
You dont mention what you are using it for....if its under pressure, make sure you get seamless.
cheers,
Lennard

Is there such a thing as not seamless copper pipe, it seem welding it would be a challenge at a minimum as I'm not sure how you'd resistance weld it?

Seamless or drawn it is for a low pressure 15to 20 psi boiler so I don't think it would be a problem

Find a old plumper
They keep copper pipe for ever.
There are places like McMaster Carr that sells small pieces but the price is high

I would look at stainless steel tub.
Lower in cost and find more place that has short pieces. They will though away as
