Rough crankshaft forgings.

I just got a couple of Eagle 4340 cranks in and I'm not a happy camper. These things are rough! For the money they're getting you think they might spend a little extra time to clean up General Tso's sloppy foundry work.

I've sold a heap of the rods and they've always been very neat, as far as the appearance goes. What's the deal with the crankshafts? I've always heard good things about them, I can't understand why after seeing a couple of them.

I know this is stupid because it's just cosmetics and it's hidden anyway but dang, they're rough.

Most likely just another way to cut cost for them...?

I agree 100% my eagle crank "looked" like it was made by my brothers kids at high school shop for extra credit. But it works ok.
