I know it is a bad idea to mix metals for this so my question is this, would the copper ground wire in electrical be safe to use in keeping the coils stiff?

That is copper so you're not mixing metals. You building your own or re-enforcing a store bought model?

I know in theory im not, but kinda wondering if the ground wire is really pure copper. I know it looks it when you cut it but wasnt 100% sure.

Built my own, 60ft with a center and outer coil. Cooled down 4 gallons yesterday in under 10 min, talk about happy!
