I am familiar with working brass. I suspect that this could
be done, but I have no confidence that the connector will

teflon would be ruined.
The connector doesn't look like a solder type. It appears,
from the pictures, to be screwed into a solid block, and
perhaps makes spring contact with the circuit board.
