Are the electrical lines for the pendants running through the galvanized pipe?

Thanks. I can't believe that bending the track did cause them to have shorts in the flow of electricity.

The conductors are copper and by bending them on a long radius, you can prevent the conductors from being "crimped".

I think this oval shape is probably the best solution. The others may be a bit too modern looking for my kitchen. Obviously, we will not be able to have some pendants, but maybe I can find some interesting shades - or whatever you call them.

Great track lighting look - the track for the lights came in an eight foot straight piece. I bent it around my knee to make the 90 degree bends. The lights and track are made by Sea Gull Lighting. Kt bending the track did not cause them to have shorts in the flow of electricity. The conductors are copper and by bending them on a long radius, you can prevent the conductors from being "crimped
