So satisfying watching an industrial lathe make a crank!
This is hypnotizing to watch, that CNC lathe tool in incredible! The lath machine is so cool to watch as it tears away at the raw metal making it into a crank! Next time you wonder why custom parts are so expensive this is why, the entire thing has to be custom-made, tested and balanced. The precision of a machine like this is unmatched you can’t get a more precise tool for the job! The machines alone can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars so the parts they make are not cheap!
