I have had good luck using seat grinding tools as well as a file to resurface an old seat. However, never tried the solder trick. My luck it wouldn't take or not smooth out and I would spend more time messing around with it than it's worth.

Somewhere I have one of those old Sexauer tools that's pictured, now I have to go find it.

I also carry a couple of seat kits, I usually have a replacement if needed. I still carry those in the truck even though I only may need a seat couple times a year. Here in the Minneapolis St.Paul twin city area there are still many old faucets in use and for many various reasons can't always change out the faucet.
