When it comes to replacing parts on a transmission or any other components, these seemingly simple pieces can end up racking up quite the bill and eventually, before you know it, you’ll be in deep with your bank statement really paying the price to end up buying parts that aren’t performance oriented and are just replacement parts, anyways.

While you might not always be able to avoid buying replacement parts for your damaged wares, this time, we’re shown one handy trick that could save you a couple bucks when it comes to replacing a transmission shaft or, theoretically, any other shaft that has a threaded end on it that seems to have damaged threads.

With a few tools and a couple of minutes of time, we watch as this guy works his magic, snapping one bit into place that finds any good threads that are left and uses force to bend and form the rest of the threads back into shape so that you don’t have to replace the whole entire part over something that could be simply fixed.

Check out the video below that will show you the process from start to finish as this transmission shaft gets brought back to life, potentially saving whoever was going to have to pay to replace it a couple of hundred dollars. This might be a small win, but a lot of money was saved that was just going to be essentially thrown away.
