A lot of the steel is going to the tubing division for the gas and oil industry.
But for the most part Timkens steel is second to none, the harrison ave plant makes the good stuff. I know several of my Harleys were born there.
I remember watching everthing being made from start to finish, each and Every bearing was hand finished, people took pride in there work here in Canton.

Timken also got into the transmission industry for wind generation..

The lights look great. Good point on the low draw advantage.

I am glad to hear that Timken is still viable and growing . I was bummed that my Timken front wheel bearing / hub assemblies were made in Romania .

Timken also supplies bar steel for crank forgings. I'm not sure where that steel comes from but I know we used to use it in our cranks (I work at the nissan power train plant in TN). I'm not sure if we still do or not though (I am on cylinder heads).

Can anyone tell me how the flux capacitor is used to facilitate time travel???

Oh, it's a very good point; that's why I'll be using LEDs for my all-around lighting.

I never knew that Timken was anything other than a bearings and seals company until Ravenworks posted up , kind of funny that you are directly related to it .

Where the finest steel in the world is made.
I am about 2 miles from the faircrest plant and about in the middle of the whole property.
Out in front of me is where the bearings where made.
The other picture is from my day job.
Ok Greg I am done crapping on your thread.

Stuff some plotfill behind there while you have it open.
