By radius. I am talking about the radius of my right angle turns, that is, not too low a radius so as to kink the wire or to impede the flow of current. Thanks For Help! Ray

If you kink the wire you hve realy done something. You will not impede the electron flow by bending it.

I have read that lightning (high currents) does not like to make turns. Maybe "kinks" was the wrong word but it would be possible to compress the wire if you made too sharp a bend. Also, the magnetic fields would be exceptionally strong around the wire and would have to be considered, if you made a loop the magnetic fields would repel so strongly that connections, even strong mechanical ones, could be pulled loose.
Thanks Again Ray

use the ground wire,,,not copper tube,,,,,big difference in the two as well
and no, that would not pass any inspection if that was the case

the use of the plumbing as a ground connection is not the same as an electrical panel ground,,,The connection to plumbing as a ground connection is used to dissipate very small amounts of intermediate current, you are looking at larger amounts of what could be constant current,,,,

Thats why you use Solid wire and not stranded wire,,,,,same results can happen,

I just ran wire for 2 stoves, at Lowes cost was $50 for one stove,,,$65 for the other
