Wow, John, great shot. What's the story behind this wonderful photo?

I think it's a device for removing the shell from pistachio nuts, Leo.

Thank you Leo, and whoelius, for your visits. I guess it could be used for removing shells from pistachio nuts but perhaps a bit heavy for that?

It is actually a rotor from a steam turbine that drives a generator to produce electricity.

Best wishes to you both, John

John is that from one of the Batu units?

Leo Roundtree on February 28, 2010

Thanks for the explanation, John. I didn't accept who's explanation for a minute. Maybe walnuts, but not pistachio nuts! :)

Greetings, Leo

Hi Scott, this one is a spare that has just been returned from balancing. It looks almost new!

Best wishes, John

Hello David,thanks for your visit and kind comments and the Y*. This is actually from a very small turbine but they are mostly of similar design. I am surprised at the amount of interest in it.
