Default Torches

use the big one and heat evenly.
Wire brush and a 100% cotton rag will help remove the molten lead.
Try not to inhale the fumes .If you have to sand it clean to get bare metal prepped for welding wear gloves and a mask lead dust is highly toxic.

Default Safety Gear

Good ventilation, longsleeves and goggles.The stuff has a tendencey to splatter and it burns like a B---- !
No fun gettin' a hot beebee in yer eye!
You can use white cotton gardening style gloves to wipe the solder/lead away too .You just have to be quick about it so's you don't burn through the glove.I've used this method for soldering water pipes for years because it saves your hands when you want to wipe the fittings of excess solder.
They can usually be had in small 25 pr. bales at plumbing and industrial supply houses
[cheers]
