Took off the tub spout today and replaced it. It started leaked upon whih I noted multiple dips and indentations in the copper pipe caused by over tightening of the screw.

Do I have any options that do not involve cutting into the wall or sweating on a new piece of pipe? Are there any spouts that are made to be more generous and can compensate for damaged pipes?(if not, there should be!)

Delta has an adapter that can work on a short stubout. You need to use a rear threaded tub spout with that.
