The instructions I dimly remember do suggest stainless steel wool.

I'll have to get one at the grocery store and give it a go. OTOH, the
Weller butane unit is around $100 and apparently does the job nicely.
Now that I've opened my mouth, people are pointing out all sorts of
tools well under the $800 I feared. The better the tool and the lower
the price, the less likely I am to bother with a kludge.
