True, solder is great if there isn't any stress on the repair. I like brazing 'cause it is more the same hardness of the steel substrate and is much stronger than lead. I have had better luck smoothing brazing than lead. I always seem to end up with a shadow outline with lead 'cause of the softness. I guess I am not real carful in finishing! I had a '41 Willys inside windshield frame (rarer than a '90s White House teenage inturn not molested by Bill Clinton) that was totally swiss cheesed by rust in the bottom corners. Brazed the whole thing, covering holes and pitted metal and it chromed like new.
