Blakenstein, I'm not the best speller, but you can do the same thing with brass welding rod and flux and a good hot tip on a torch. Some old Schwinn frames and others were built this way.
It takes a steady hand to get the brass to puddle. I've also repaired radiators using this method. But, now I prefer to use my tig welder, it takes some practice too.
I think I'm doing pretty good, being 74 years old, still riding and building bikes.
