Default OK to Use a Wire Brush in a Drill?

http://www.amazon.com/Century-Drill-...re+drill+brush

I have a pan with some metal crispies above the pan surface. I'm talking the cooking side the pan.

I could wire brush it, or sand it in some fashion, taking care to not heat the pan in the process.

Any concerns?

I would not use that on cast iron with any collectible value, particularly not on factory polish ground surfaces. If it leaves marks, it kills value.

As in modern unpolished pieces? What exactly do you have you need to work on?

Need a photo. Griswold skillet cooking surfaces should not have anything in need of grinding off.
