    Brass brush maybe if done By hand using a brush with a wooden handle, (thanks JonB for pointing out my omission) try the hardwood first. Brass (any ) brush in a power tool had a steel shaft that can harm your mold.

    jwhite, IF your oven is a convection oven, you will need to determine the voltage of the fans and power them directly and not through the PID otherwise the constant off-on for temperature control will quickly burn out the fan.

    It doesn't try to anticipate, It just helps you correct spelling and some grammar. It puts a red line under any of your mistakes/possible mistakes, you hover the mouse over the line and it will show you suggestions to fix it.
