Aluminess's customer service has always been highly regarded. I brought that up once while talking to Dave Hoskins, (the owner) and he was very interested in hearing about my customer service experiences. It was clear that he understands superior customer service helps a company be successful and grow. He even invited me to contact him personally if I ever had any issues or concerns. Not a lot of owners are willing to do that.

First you can spray a red penetrant like this,

and then spray developer like this. The die will soak into any voids and show as a red streak on the white developer. This can show nearly invisible cracks

Alternative: Smack the item of concern with a BFH. If it breaks, it was going to break anyways.
