Hello there! Thanks for using Hakko products. The brass wire would need to be replaced over time, as it will degrade with usage and no longer clean as well. The brass wire is lightly abrasive so it works well at cleaning the tip without damaging the plating beneath the solder. With time the metal will degrade and since it is already soft and lightly abrasive, it has the potential of degrading and once it has degraded, it will not be as capable of removing oxide layers from the solder tip. Thanks. AHP
No, it is not designed for that purpose. This is light and portable so you can pick it up and scrub the tip back and forth to clean the tip.
I'm sure they can ship most any place on the planet.
