.... Rebuild it!
I wonder what this guy's blood lead level is?
kids, don't try this @ home . . .
FIFTEEN CENT MINIMUM WAGE??? Are you CRAZY? We can't afford that. Back to work!
The interesting thing about this is.... I don't see any remelting and reclaiming the lead for de-sulphating/renewing the plates. It's kinda like he just took it apart, remade the posts, put new liners between the plates and put it back together.... did I miss that?
That is, weirdly fascinating. And Wow, not even protective gloves! Next time you're worried about a H&S issue at work... Spare a moment to think about that guy!
So, anyone wanting to live in an unregulated world where its all about what you should be allowed to do... That could also be what you're expected to do!
I don’t think he’s suffering any ill effects. As a matter of fact I think he looks pretty dang good for an 18 year old.
I think I’ll just buy a new one when needed.
"We don't need no 15 cents an hour minimum wage!"
Wonder if he'll do the tongue test in the next video.
There's a reason this sort of industry occurs in underdeveloped countries.
Same goes for shipbreaking; many workers suffer serious health issues due to poisoning.
OSHA ruined everything!
For the record, Johnson Controls makes the vast majority of car batteries for many competing brands here in the US. The best deal on them is found at Wal Mart. Not kidding.
Some countries do offer safety training:
In the 1960's and 70's I used to buy rebuilt batteries for my VWs.....they did the work on site here in Ft Worth. Wonder if EPA has ever tested that bit of real estate? I need to drive by there someday and see what's there.
For those familiar with Ft Worth, it was along Jacksboro Hwy........
Lotta sketchy things along the Jacksboro Hwy, at least back in the 60s and 70s when I lived in the area.
Incredible to watch that guy work - so much of the world unknown to us lives and works like that -
Talk about getting the Lead Out!
Hand work refurbishment of that battery. Most of the problem was the sludge shorting out the plates. The guy cleaned all that out and used new pads.
Similar process refurbishing a starter and radiator. When you don't have access to cheap parts you repair what you can.
Only the ones that live long enough to suffer the effects of the poisoning before being killed in accidents, though.
That is the truth
