I've been preheating with a bango burner, oxy/ace torch and at 165 amps I still can't make a puddle

Sorry for the misunderstanding
I have an oxy set, propane, forge and a big damn camp fire for heating
And used several of them, while attempting to tig weld the thick copper
When that failed, I resorted to annealing the copper and beating the hell out of it with a big f hammer.
I'm sure copper is malleable, the question is "how many times can an old fat man, smack the copper with a hammer"
