I came across this completely by chance and thought y'all might get a kick out of it.

I'd love to see the same sort of video from fuel tank manufacturing in other countries. I'm sure it's every bit as sketchy everywhere.

Great video. The "blanking press" was novel. That's basically how all tanks are made but I would think that most factories of OEM tanks are a little closer to OSHA approved and typically would transport parts from one workstation to another of conveyor belts.

True on the mechanization aspect. I know those dies can't be a cheap item tp get. I wonder if back-street operations like that get "retired" dies from larger manufacturers and are, essentially, making knock-offs of older OEM tanks?

I can’t even cut roof flashing without cutting myself, I wouldn’t survive there lol.
Many moons ago when I was in college my summer job was working in a small factory that made table slides. I ran a shear, brake press, and a spot welder as well as packing. Had to wear a leather apron to keep the edges of the sheet metal from shredding the front of my pants. Usually went through two pair of gloves every day as well.

What was the stick beating on the inner bridge all about toward the end?

Possibly. You see a LOT of Honda CG125 and Honda Monkey tanks for pretty cheap....

Doesn’t sound fun to me lol. I’ve been in construction for too long. I’ve always had the bad habit of letting things slide through my hands or fingers, I guess for control. Never really needed stitches but lots of thin slices…if it wasn’t wasn’t a slice, it was a gnarly sliver… up on a roof bleeding on the house lol, good times.
