It is a very common engineering procedure to hard chrome plate undersize
shafts oversize and then grind to size.

We use the technique a lot when someone drops a clanger and provided the
bearing balls or needles do not run directly on the shaft, for example in
the gearbox.

If you are interested, I could find you the name of the company which
would
do the operation.

Hi,

We use Yorkshire plating services ltd, 01274 651148. The contact is Steve
Widdup. Note they do hard chrome plating, not decorative, so you will not be
able to have your bumpers done at the same time!

I have not seen the photo, but the process is used for building up a few
thou. I suggest you ask their advice if the wear is greater. They have the
experience know if a repair would be practical.
