Spotting danger signals on cable cars, chairlifts and carnival rides.
1. New rust is dangerous
2. Peeling paint is bad. If they don't have money for paint, they don't got money for parts.

Gentlemen, welcome back to the shop, we're rust, storing, focus you thank you ross, storing these bolts, what for putting in some old gear so that they have a continuity of of cami. You know that warm feeling you get from old gear what's been around. It develops its own soul. We don't want to ruin that with shiny new bolts, but you can see here we got shiny new rust, this red looking rust is hydrous iron oxide.

I'm going to show you a little secret here. Might save somebody's life might be? Yours? Might be one of your dear family members if and you're on a piece of gear, and you see this red rust, it means it's fresh, it's fresh, rust now say you're getting on. Oh, i don't know an italian cable car and you look up and you notice that the chicken outfit is cheaper than a coat of paint. Don't get on the gear.

Don't pay for the ticket. Fellas ask me, you know, i don't know anything about gear but uh. I don't want my family to look. I i got ta put this it's it's absolutely shocking and i didn't want to put it in the previous video because it was so vile.

But the reason fresh rust is a bigger danger. Sign than old rust is fresh rust. Only occurs when newly exposed metal meets water. Why is there newly exposed metal on a 20 year old chairlift, because something is loosening off a bolt? Is loosening or the foundation is cracking or there's a crack in the steel structure, or it's never been touched by water before and now it is now in order to get rid of it.

We got ta drive off hey little man, we got ta drive, yeah sweetie. Think about what you're, gon na say and then say it, so you see the difference there between old rust and new rust old rust, not so worrisome new rust be very, very careful. Also, if you see it's missing bolts or this, that the other thing it's been up down a million times like rides at the county fair, you know you got to walk through a mist of hydraulic fluid to get on the ride. Maybe don't buy that ticket because you're gon na get more than your bargain for.

    Like that fact that you had a spare tray of belly lint oil at the ready to dunk those bolts in to and "restore" them to factory reconditioned status. That's worth about 10,ooo Kanadian klopecs on the "free" market.

    Used to fly on planes for a living and there was an acceptable limit of missing fasteners on skin panels and covers. I understand margin of safety factors and I do visually inspect equipment before riding for sketchiness and pucker factor (both subjective and personal risk tolerance dependent). Those cable Wheels with what three fasteners out of eight installed (I think it was 8, counting is hard), seems like a pretty high sketch factor. Not sure the safety margin was plused up to be more than 50% missing and still function. (edited because typing on phone sucks)

    Love your vids! Can you tell us why cordless Dewalt batteries overheat compared to some other equally or higher quality(red) cordless batteries when under tremendous stress tests on YouTube? Thanks! Like maybe a dissection?

    This tutorial should also include stepwise instructions on how to pre-fatigue the bolts just like the ones that you're replacing. Juuuuuuust enough stretch so it's right at the yield limit without any external indication. Would you do this before or after the patina process? Asking for a friend…

    All I got out of this was, “think about what to say before you say it “. Those words are priceless and to learn at a young age is more valuable than a PhD and to follow up with listen twice as much as you talk would be the finisher to every thing you need to know you learn on AvE’s channel

    My wife and daughter insisted upon a ferris wheel ride at a fair this year. That thing looked sketchier than a 2 dollar pirate hooker at best. Anyways, while we're on this thing I could see that it was all dowels and cotters holding her together and I watched a pin WALK OUT OF A HOLE. Not entirely but it was making progress…quickly. never again.

    Reminds me of my trip to croatia. At the party beach they has an old Liebherr towercrane, one of them trailer ones for smaller jobs, and they were offering bungee jumps out of a basket hanging from the hook. Good chance that you wouldn't come back up tho. You could clearly see that they just slathered paint onto rust on the boom, and that even the bearings the boom pivots on were undergreased and rusting. Not to mention that the crane wasn't built for that kind of use. Fucking death trap if you ask me

    Yooo just watched a old modern marvels about this exact same thing today. They let the rust get to the screws and the tops just popped right off, rip that highway. Oh and that stadium dome… oh and that oil rig…

    Daughters wanted old discarded railroad spikes to paint. Most the fun is finding them. Ended up with 50 spikes ,mostly bent, and few big nuts piling up by garage. Absolute now way I was going to wire brush the mess of them. Bought some sandblast medium and threw all them in my cement mixer. Was amazed at how well it worked and neighbors were amazed at how loud it was.
