Got to agree with Larry.... That's the way the instrument tubing guys did it in 
the old days before we went to stainless. Now everything is electronic so it's 
probably a lost art.

If you have some soft copper and want to make a nice looking job, roll out 
ever how much you are going to need. Then anchor one end to something solid and 
hook the other end to a come-a-long, wench or something similar and pull on 
it, this will straighten the tubing and you will still be able to make nice 
bends. Just don't go overboard on the pulling or the tubing will get a little 
smaller in diameter. This will make the tubing harder but I don't think you 
ever have a problem as we done this for many years.
