Fiberglass manufacture, Owens-Corning, Toledo, Ohio. Millions of carefully inspected glass marbles, ready for remelting and forming into glass filaments. A single marble can be drawn into a continuous filament so fine that it would reach from New York to Philadelphia. More than one hundred filaments must be drawn together to make the finest workable strand
