Ray Fish Electro Adapter My Obituary

I always found Ray to be very intelligent, and a shrewd business man. He would be 90 years old, if he were alive today. I met Ray Fish of AQ Die Casting/Electro Adaptor on 12/11/03 when my maintenance manager, Victor Ortega, gave me his name telling me that Ray had two Toshiba die casting machines for sale, a 350ton and a 400ton with ladlers prints and manuals. The machines did not work so Ray wanted $5,000 for both die casting machines. AQ Die Casting Electro-Adaptor (https://www.electro-adapter.com/)

In 09/15/12, Ray Fish contacted me to say that he was closing down AQ Die Casting but keeping Electro Adapter. Ray sent me several dies and tooling for several customers. Since then, Ray was on my cookie and almond roca list.

On 11/11/21, I received this email from Ray regarding my Christmas almond roca update. “Thank you for the thought I lost my sweetheart and best friend 2 weeks ago to the virus 69 years of bliss. God Bless her for being there for me as always. My holidays will be memories Be Safe & Be Well, Ray”

In 1969, Ray Fish founded AQ Die Casting/Electro Adapter. Ray was involved with die castings since the 1950s. He took over operations from Barron Die Casting in the late 1960s or early 1970s.

In 1979, ten years later, he moved operations to a 54,000 square foot facility in Chatsworth, California. The Chatsworth facility, completed in 1979, is devoted to the design, development, production and qualification of connector accessories.

Electro Adapter, Inc. manufactures and supplies connector accessories, conduit assemblies, and accessory banding systems for aerospace, military, marine, railroad, and industrial automation markets. It specializes in thin-wall aluminum and zinc castings. The company offers die-castings, bulkhead adapters, extenders, connector savers, protective covers, shorting cans, banding tools, and composites; and accessories for D-sub, micro-D, circular, and ARINC rectangular connectors. It also provides casting, machining, trimming, de-burring, plating, inspection, and metal finishing services for commercial and mil spec applications; and tool and mold design and fabrication, surface treatment, painting, and assembly services.

God Bless America

Independence Day celebrates the signing of our Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776. The Continental Congress declared that the thirteen American colonies regarded themselves as a new nation, the United States of America, and were no longer part of the British Empire. The Congress actually voted to declare independence two days earlier, on July 2.

Independence Day is commonly associated with fireworks, parades, barbecues, carnivals, fairs, picnics, concerts, baseball games, family reunions, and political speeches and ceremonies, in addition to various other public and private events celebrating the history, government, and traditions of the United States. Independence Day is the National Day of the United States.

As Americans gather to celebrate Independence Day, they also look towards the future with optimism and hope, mindful of the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead. The 4th of July serves as a reminder that the principles enshrined in the Declaration of Independence — equality, justice, and democracy — remain as relevant today as they were over two centuries ago. It is a day to reaffirm our commitment to upholding these ideals and building a brighter, more inclusive future for generations to come.

The 4th of July is more than just a holiday — it is a testament to the enduring spirit of a nation founded on the principles of liberty and self-determination. As Americans gather to celebrate this hallowed day, they do so with a sense of pride in their shared heritage and a determination to uphold the values that define the American experience. From fireworks to family gatherings, the 4th of July is a celebration of freedom, unity, and the boundless possibilities of the American dream.

Cast-Rite Die Casting Company Closing

For over seventy years, established in 1941, Cast-Rite Corporation was a leading provider of high-precision die-casting parts. Committed to continuous improvement, they delivered top quality solutions to customers in a wide range of industries.

Cast-Rite Corporation
515 East Airline Way
Gardena, CA 90248

Sadly, Cast-Rite Corporation also known as Castrite Die Casting Company is closing. Cast-Rite Corp. Established in 1941 and based in Gardena, USA, was a manufacturer and supplier of high-pressure die casting.

I have said it before. I hate to see our local American and specifically Southern California manufacturing companies close. I hate to see our California die casting company competitors close. Small American businesses provide jobs for our local California workers and their families. Small California businesses also support small local suppliers by purchasing supplies, production goods and raw materials. Purchasing those products gives additional jobs to Americans so they can succeed and feed their families.

A little about Cast-Rite included die-casting, aluminum die-casting, zinc die-casting, CNC machining, and multi-spindle machining. These products are integral for a wide spectrum of military, electronics, and commercial applications. It primarily served industries such as defense and space manufacturing, military, electronics, and commercial sectors. The company also offered services like surface finishing, continuous training, metrology, and spectroscopy. Die casting is the process of melting metal material and putting it into a mold or steel die to shape the metal as it re-hardens.

Cast-Rite Hero – Gardner “Bick” Bickford – At the onset of World War II “Bick” joined the United States Marine Corps where he saw action in the Pacific Theater. There he was wounded in action and received the Purple Heart. He ended his military career as a Presidential Guard. After the war, he settled in Southern California and began his first business in 1955. “Bick” gained experience and knowledge over the years working for Mattel, Harvell, and McCullogh. He became Chief Executive Officer of Cast-Rite Corporation in 1964 and International Die Casting in 1982. He was actively working in both capacities until shortly before his death January 1, 1998. Over the years “Bick” was involved in various industry-oriented organizations. He was one of the founders of the Society of Die Cast Engineers and served a term as Chairman. In 1986 he was named “Man of the Year” by the Society. He was also active in the North American Die Casting Association. Other famous industry related Cast-Rite Corporation individuals were Donald Don De Haan. President, also Wynn Chapman, President, and Kenneth “Ken” Peete.

Zinc Die Cast Handles

Zinc die-cast handles have become a popular choice for various industries and applications due to their exceptional durability, strength, and aesthetic appeal. Zinc, a versatile metal known for its corrosion resistance and high thermal conductivity, is transformed into handles through the die-casting process, which involves melting the metal and injecting it into a mold. This manufacturing method allows for precise and complex designs, making zinc die-cast handles suitable for a wide range of products such as doors, cabinets, furniture, and more.

One of the key advantages of zinc die-cast handles is their strength and durability. Zinc is a robust material that can withstand heavy use and harsh environmental conditions without losing its structural integrity. This makes zinc die-cast handles ideal for applications that require reliability and long-lasting performance. Whether used in commercial settings or residential properties, zinc handles offer a dependable solution for everyday use.

In addition to their durability, zinc die-cast handles are also valued for their aesthetic appeal. The die-casting process allows for intricate designs and fine details to be incorporated into the handles, giving them a sleek and modern look. With a wide range of finishes available, including chrome, satin nickel, black, and antique brass, zinc handles can complement any style or décor, adding a touch of elegance to the overall design of the product.

Furthermore, zinc die-cast handles are known for their corrosion resistance, making them suitable for indoor and outdoor applications alike. Zinc naturally forms a protective layer of zinc oxide when exposed to the elements, preventing rust and corrosion from affecting the handles. This superior corrosion resistance ensures that zinc handles will maintain their appearance and functionality over time, even in high-moisture environments or outdoor settings.

Another benefit of zinc die-cast handles is their ease of installation. Due to their lightweight nature and malleability, zinc handles can be easily attached to various surfaces using standard hardware and tools. This makes them a convenient choice for manufacturers, contractors, and DIY enthusiasts looking for a hassle-free installation process.

Moreover, zinc die-cast handles offer excellent thermal conductivity, allowing for efficient heat dissipation and cool-to-the-touch surfaces during operation. This feature is particularly advantageous for applications where temperature control is essential, such as kitchen cabinets, appliances, or industrial equipment.

Overall, zinc die-cast handles combine strength, durability, aesthetics, corrosion resistance, ease of installation, and thermal conductivity in a single product, making them a preferred choice for a wide range of applications. Whether used in residential, commercial, or industrial settings, zinc handles provide a reliable and stylish solution that enhances the functionality and appearance of various products. With their exceptional qualities and design versatility, zinc die-cast handles continue to be a popular choice for manufacturers and consumers seeking high-quality hardware solutions.
