If you insist on braze and re-tap fix:

A few years ago there was a tool galoot selling 12-20 tap & die to help with Stanley repairs on eBay.
Can not find them now. :(

But Dr Google tells me you can get custom pitch 12-20 tap from Victor?
Do not see a bottom plug tap offered by Victor, and that is what you need to fully clean up shallow threads in cast iron bases. So be sure to order an extra and grind the tip down slightly to make your own bottom tap. :)
