1928-03-04 Koch new brake tester
NEW BRAKE TESTER. The Auto Brake and Service Com pany, operated by Earl Koch, has moved Into new quarters on Plum street, opposite the City Hall. The company formerly operated on Main street. The Jumbo Brake Tester is featured by this company as a device that takes the guess work out of brake testing. This is an electric hydraulic testing machine that operates operates from the weight of the car and records instantly the braking power of each wheel. Thus the old method of operating the car and applying the foot pedals to see If the brakes are acting smoothly Is done away with.
