ya only thing that sucks is with brass you basically have to sand it all down again or super pickle it (50/50 pickle/H202) to get all the copper that comes up to the surface (one of the reasons i dont want to attempt to change or fix anything that doesnt totally need it), and not to mention the whole steel in pickle causing copper plating which would just make more of a mess and cause more cleaning
