Difference between Chinese and German bearings

Postby WingAdmin » Thu May 12, 2016 2:51 pm



The first bearing is Chinese made. The second is German made, and costs 30 times the price of the Chinese one. You'll see why:

Very impressive... there is only one way to make things, that's the right way... China and Russia never learned this and instead opted for mass production with disposable qualities. We might wish for a fleet of 200 aircraft and build 200 quality, working aircraft. The Chinese and Russians would instead build 2000 hoping to keep 200 flying... and this is what now makes many, many items of all kinds for all over the world...

Sad to think that a lot of these junk parts are ending up in things we get as manufacturers look to keep 'competitive' or increase profit
Used to be if you bought a fridge, you could expect it to last 20 years....now they end up be recycled after 5 -10 years max....at least they 'energy efficient' (lighter / cheaper)...not sure where the energy or environmental savings is there..........much less losing jobs overseas just to get junk back........
Hate to be negative, that is my rant for the day.....

Well hate to point this out like this. The one world government is in total control now and since the start the time is now to take back what our fathers paid for in blood we need to stand together. For all that is good. :!: :!: :!: :!:
