Dwarfed by a huge casting at the General Electric Company turbine plant here, a workman fits easily inside a bearing housing as he inspects the casting's machined surfaces.
When this casting has been assembled as a part of the completed turbine-generator set, the bearing will support one end of a whirling, 42-ton turbine rotor.
The set is second of two 100,000 kilowatt rated capacity turbine-generators built here for the Tidd Station of the Ohio Power Company, Brilliant, Ohio, of the American Gas and Electric Company's central system.
