    Patina is a corrosion and lessens conductivity. The inside of the copper is fine, but the outside now has a protective layer. You need to sand clean the the edges of the tube that make electrical contact, and just leave the patina on the exterior that you see.

    I put Vaseline on the threads before patina and cleaned with wire brush and steel wool. I also left the tubes together and didn't patina the top cap or button, just the tube and air flow ring.
