        Looks like they have enough steel to make quite a few of those and good luck to them too!

            Love the guy with the pink gloves. Sad to see children do this. The dude tightening the chuck on the broach operation must have a strong back. the machine is at the perfect heightto force him to buckle over all day long. How do they even find a market for this soft crap.

              Gotta say, not seeing anything there worth mocking. Its a factory cranking out tools that are as good as they need to be with minimal tech

                  HarborFreight. I try to buy the nicest tool I can afford but I also shop at HF when I need "good enough."
                  Really not a whole lot different than manufacturing in the US 100 years ago: low wage and hazardous to your health. Or 50 years ago when my dad stood on the Ford assembly line in Cleveland torquing intake manifold bolts on 302 engines and some of my high school buddies where working in the steel mills. Of course by then workers were demanding higher wages and some reasonable safety, and manufacturing was looking for cheaper labor. Same old story.

                      Now you know when you buy something like that why it's got all those little "beat to crap" marks on it lol

                      Can't knock the workers ---- again a lesson in efficiency and hard work...

                      Still - levels of refinement that would barely cost a dime and speed things up for the workers and just make it plain better both for them and the end product,

                      like the guy putting in the detent ball, have the "anvil plate" at least on some kinda table and held in so it can't move around and does not have to be re-adjusted all the time, ball end mill a channel for the round tool to sit in so the square end is on a flat surface and weld a stop for it --- that way the damn thing wont rock when you hit it, will also keep the striking tool 90 degree's in relation to the "wrench" and even speed up the job for the "small child"...

                      Now I know why those detent ball keeper marks are so freakin out of wack on that cheap stuff...

                      the above mentioned would benefit everything including production --- does not even take a "walk through" just takes looking at the vid - that's just one out of many many things I seen that could be drastically improved upon and would cost next to nothing and save tons of effort and increase production and make for a better part,

                      that's what's really sad about stuff like this, hard working people - and efficient for the job their given - just no supervision in "set up and production tactics"

                      yet the parts will keep coming - and day after day they muddle through it all, basically forced to do things the wrong way...

                      Can you imagine the look on the guys face if you gave him the simple things I just described? it would change his life!!!
                      heck he might even feel like someone gives a crap about him a little,,, and then there's india and china,

                      Everybody needs to watch stuff like this once in awhile - it makes you realize where the unions sprouted up from, of course - where im from they are like kudzu now,,, they put a strangle hold on companies until they go under....

                          Love the guy at 12:00. Fills gloves then drains them on the floor. Brilliant!

                          Oyeah, it's probably a snap on part. Sells for $462.50

                            Sure but not to this degree and not as wide spread...

                              I don't think so. These are definitely below even HF grade. The first thing anybody would do in an industrial environment is put a pipe on the handle of that thing and twist the end right off. No use to anyone IMO.
