Quoting from The Smokeshop Magazine Online: Ã¢ÂeÂoeThe spiral-bound book is comprised of three chapters. The first tells the story of Custom-Bilt pipes from their beginning with Tracey Mincer in 1929, through their name change to Custombilt in 1946, and finally to their ending in 1998 under the ownership of Wally Frank. Also discussed is the Tracy Mincer Pipe Co. from its founding in 1952 and its years under Claude Stuart until its closing in 1990. Chapter Two tells what is known of the major people involved, including the Mincer and Stuart families. The third and largest chapter provides a comprehensive account, with numerous illustrations, of the major and offshoot pipe lines associated with the Custom-Bilt, Custombilt, and Tracy Mincer names.Ã¢ÂeÂ
