Default REBAR: Regret

Who's watching the shop, so to speak?
We should be seriously concerned. Once the labels have been removed or switched, how would you know? Until you try forming it.

Not good for much of anything. Maybe it's sold to their enemies. Build the building and hit them with a truck and the entire structure collapses. But seriously, quality control was asleep that shift for sure. There's no way they made that on purpose......is there?

That is scary . Imagine all the bridges and buildings that are likely using that , and who knows how many tons of it is in use .
I sure love outsourcing

I doubt very much there is any quality control . I suspect all there shipments are the same , and this is done knowingly. Will be interesting to see the look on their faces when itís all shipped back

Frightening when you realize how much of our steel is imported. That label in the vid clip says "IRAN" but where did they get it from?
I guess the good news is they're using it themselves...oh, wait! Nuclear facilities!

I watched the Chineese forging a flange, amazing, I'm sure that there are faster more precision methods out there.

You'd think casting and machining would make more sense but perhaps there're downsides to casting?

I guess this answers my question. Slightly more efficient than that original flange making.

Salesman: Hey Mike, we have a really good deal on this Iranian rebar!

Me: Hey great! Sign me up for a whole truckload of it. When I am shopping for major structural components, I alway look for stuff made in a nice third-world country!
