In the field, you have to be craetive and adaptive ... Here are a few ideas:

1. Can you use a SharkBite fitting which would eliminate soldering at that point?

2. If not, use a squirt bottle to saturate the wood before torching the copper.

3. I keep a leftover metal shield recycled from a water heater which protects the woods while I solder. (See picture) Works like a charm. Just wedge it where it needs to be.

Country boy; We're all red necks at one time or another. I'm sure your heat sinc works but the pad you can buy is not all that much money.
