I guess we are not the only tradesmen that see them.
I was channel surfing yesterday and ran across a show where this guy restores cars.
The guy had an old Ford Bronco that was pretty trashed and ready for the junk yard that he totally restored.
Well, he got to looking at the steering column and discovered that a joint (Can't remember the exact name of it) where the steering wheel rod joins to the linkage going to the steering box, someone had drilled a hole right through the center of both rods and put a bolt right through them to join them back together! LMAO!
The guy on the show clearly stated "If you are doing work like this, stop it. It's going to get someone killed."
I just wonder how much stuff they see like this in mechanic shops. LOL
