    every time I see those vids of dudes in india just making precision mechanical parts on the street in literal piles of dirt my head gets blown away

      I actually learned a lot from watching that shit.
      The one place I don’t want to work in pakistan is the lead-acid car battery recycler. Or the hexavalent chrome plating station.
      A lot of their craftsman skills are amazing.

      why? they don't understand anything about metallurgy or tolerances or best practices. i've seen videos of these morons rebuilding engines on scraps of cardboard on a dirt/sand floor. nothing they are making or repairing will last.

        yeah, this is what nobody seems to realize about these third-world repair shops. it may look okay on the surface and their processes are interesting, but you quickly realize whatever they "fixed" is going to break again in a week

          I'm not saying it's fine to work in the dirt, but I disagree with your statement that none of their work will last very long.

                in that bootleg chrome plating video anon talked about, they made a socket wrench out of mystery round stock without any heat treatment.

            You are correct, I spent a lot of time in bumfrick Mexico and central America in the 70s and saw some incredible fixes of motors and other gear using random household grade materials that lasted as long as the original factory parts did...people would be stuck with no parts available and get something like an outboard fixed with a head gasket made out of cardboard and aluminum soda can metal with the idea of replacing it ASAP, but once it had worked for months they'd figure why bother and five years later it was fine.

              Not as impressive as rebuilding an engine from scrap but I broke the handle on my yard brush over 2 years ago and instead of going to get a replacement handle I just took a branch off a tree, pared it down and used that instead. Despite being a gnarled mess it's still going strong years later.

    That way, I can filter not only all the pajeets and pakis, but even a lot of the russian/eastern european nonsense channels where they slap together a bunch of scraps and paint the new thing "their" color. (That seems to be an eastern euro thing, but they all do it - one guy paints black with green highlights, one paints blk/org, another paints blk/blu, etc.)
    Yeah, I'll hand it to you, some of them are pretty clever, I guess. Not just anybody can hand make their own reciprocating saw out of a windshield wiper motor, six old clothespins, some scrap steel that gives me tetanus just from watching the video, and a used rubber freshly retrieved from the shores of the Ganges/Wisła, but then again, most people don't have to.

    I'm sure that didn't alter the tensile strength of the rod at all.

      the tensile strength probably doesn't matter as much as the fact that the smooth chrome plating is now gone and the rod is going to rust and chew up the seals and now it's just going to piss out fliud every time you use it.

        You forget, these guys do hexavalent chrome plating all day every day, and pour any plating solution remnants out of their gloves before going home.
        In fact, ALL chrome plating will be done in india and china because it either already is, or will be soon, illegal everywhere else.

        A lot of rigidness for these rods come from surface hardening and once it's gone it turns into a wet noodle. The one in the pic has probably gone through a "repair" like that already.

          It's still a thick ass piece of steel. As long as you appropriately "derate" it and not use it too hard, then it will be sort of fine.

            not really. even slightly bent, it will destroy the gland and piston seals and wear rings, plus likely groove the bore. any damage to the chrome will also chew up gland seals like candy. they don't show the machine running after, but i bet it hemorrhages oil every stroke and gets worse by the minute. it broke or pretzeled that junk rod shortly after reinstallation. but i guess that's how you get more clickbait vid content

              Its Pakistan. That is about as good as it gets. Only way it could be better is if it exploded with the cylinder at full lift and took out a handful of those filthy Pakistanis when the bed comes crashing down...
