Thanks, soundhappy. Brianco, thanks for pointing out that part of the JC blowtorch thread. Interesting discussion. I notice that at least one person thinks that steel wool has contaminants that could interfere with soldering. Based upon this, I am thinking about trying brass wool instead. Or Scotchbrite pads.

My experience of metal 'wool' is that it is lightly oil coated to stop rust/oxygenation. I would not recommend it unless first really cleaned. I just scrape with an old blade. Works for me.
