1/32 brass will buckle even under soft solder heat if you are not careful
I make my cabs and tenders from 1/32 and am careful not to get them too hot.
I use Staybrite solder and flux which is very strong and has a low melting point.
For tanks, I usually go with 1/16" material and silver solder them.
