I haven't. I imagine it would be the most difficult way of doing things, and taking a torch to it is usually a last resort. But I've seen similar repairs done on non-paintball parts.
I've always stuck with threaded inserts, either a coil or a screw that I drill and tap. Never tried to drill and tap JB weld without an insert. Solenoid screws require very little torque and don't need to be removed frequently, but I'd still wonder how it would hold up long term.
