I saw a procedure for making a ball end on a cable, I think it was garage journal, where they took a hardware store 0 grade 3/8" bolt and cut it so it was approximately 3/8" long. then they drilled a hole through the bolt and inserted the brake cable in the hole, then used a mig welder to fuse the cable and the piece of bolt together to make the cable ball end. The write up claimed that they never had a failure using this method.
