Jim Geary writes in the introduction at the beginning of Chapter 1, "The purpose of this book is to provide toolmakers, tool buyers, tool engineers and tool users information on die design, wire EDM, how to construct dies, how a punch press operates and miscellaneous information on dies in general. "
Jim's wit and humor are interspersed through the book. It makes for great reading. Plus, you will be enlightened about terms in this trade that we all love. Example: "Did you know that a 'French Notch' should really be called a 'Fringe Notch?'" Jim goes on further writing "I have always asked every class that I taught why do we call a french notch, french notch? Everyone knows what you are talking about, but no one has an explanation. One day we received a request for quotation from a small company that requested fringe notches on their dies. Our response was 'Fringe Notch?' On my, that was it. A french notch is a fringe notch mispronounced so much that slang has replace the true description of a fringe notch. (Could this be correct? I certainly would like to know)."
