Timken was - and is - a major supplier of bearings and axles to the automotive industry.

Timken produced a series of brochures in 1915 under the heading of Timken Primer. Here are two of these catalogues. On the left is the Timken-Detroit Axle Company's 72-page brochure entitled On the Anatomy of Automobile Axles. On the right is the Timken Roller Bearing Company's 32-page brochure entitled On the Care & Character of Bearings. Note the similarity of the logo designs.
This Timken-Detroit Axle Company blotter shows the tapered design of the company's bearings.
