I need to make a high-strength connection to a different element. I am caught between either printing a stud on the stainless and threading that (cutting threads on this material is apparently possible but not fun), or inserting a mild steel rod that is easier to cut threads on -- and sweating the connection with silver solder and MAPP gas.

Because of the mixed metal sintered makeup of the stainless, I don't know how it will behave at high temperatures. Will it warp? Will it explode?

I don't think a cold solder joint will work here. It is possible "metal weld" epoxy might, though.
