This should never be done, period.  The reason is, think about it, during a 
major energy surge event, tremendous heat may be present during large current 
flows and any kind of soldering/brazing/etc will melt and you will be left with 
no or a very bad connection.

You can do two things:

1.  Exothermic connection (CadWeld, etc)

2.  Mechanical connection (will require frequent maintenance since mechanical 
connections will loosen on their own due to thermal cycling)

Do not solder or braze.  Phil  KB9CRY
