Plating is not what it was as it would take forever to get it thick enough to machine.By the vacuum deposition process or the electro coating. It could have been a collar heated and shrunk fit tight on the shaft. Or it could have been cast, but more likely it was brazed on which I believe would be the easiest and fastest way to do a repair.
