That said, I'd rather be using brass for a disc brake personally...
is that because it's more appropriate to the kind of join, just because it's stronger, or both?
I was going for the silver mostly because the melting point is lower and would be less risk to the frame, but if not appropriate then obvs will look at brass again.
It just flows like a much thinner liquid when melted so it is difficult to build up a decent size fillet so you'll have less surface area of filler holding it together.
Doable though I'm sure
