While researching a related company which turned out to be a long-term customer, for whom the relationship was extremely mutually profitable throughout the 1920s, came upon the Doehler Die-Casting Company and this publication. It is very insightful as to the die casting process, alloys used and the total commitment to quality that the company maintained, which is easily witnessed by the number (in the multi-millions) of their products which have survived intact nearing one hundred years of age (with no or few hairline cracks, pits or visible faults. Their influence and contribution(s) to the early automotive industry and manufacturing companies helped set the survivors apart from the cheap victims of the Depression/World War II era. The book is a good, informative and easy read. and, a must for early auto industry historians and researchers. * Author: F. Clax 09 . 15 . 12 *
