This is a 1952 issue Torque Specifications Manual from Snap-On Tools Company. It consists of 20 pages and covers torque wrench use instructions and specifications for cars, trucks, tractors, and industrial engines. - The company was formed as the Snap-On Wrench Company in 1920. The company's first (and major) plant was located in Johnson City, Tennessee. The company manufactured and marketed ten sockets that would "snap on" to five interchangeable handles. Snap-On entered global markets in 1931 and also began offering credit to customers. In the 1950s, Snap-On expanded on the concept of bringing product to the customer by using fully stocked walk-in vans and pioneered today's familiar franchisee van channel. Snap-On Tools is currently located in Kenosha, Wisconsin, and employs approximately 11,500 people worldwide. The company is currently worth US$ 2.4 billion.
