As long as it works that method is fine. Trouble is brazing really adds a lot of heat, likely worsening the warping problem. Better way would be stick weld w/ 7018 then having the surfaced milled. Stick welding would heat the flange less that the gas welding and of course the mill would be dead-on. Again, if your method worked bolt 'em up and go 6 seconds!
