I've used these for control cables and they don't hold very well. Hate to see you set the brake on a hill then come back and the car is somewhere else.

I'd braze a stop sleeve on behind the ebrake cable stop, using a 1 inch section of old brake line, clamped in a vise to split/slot so the braze can fill the length of it.

Alternately, just weld/build up a ball with a low amp setting on the far end of the one inch of brake line (unsplit) and quench immediately to reduce the affect of the heat on the rest of the cable.
