Singer still makes all their lugs that way. Most of them now are made by welding together tubes, then filing. Very strong, very labor-intensive, but the original lugs haven't been available in a long time.

Herse sometimes did the same. I suspect others did - Daniel Rebour recommends it in his books, if the builder is capable of doing it well. Does it really make for a stronger joint?
