Upper De» Moines Thursday, May 2, 195? F/rsf Snap-On Tool Set Shown above is one of the original sets of Snap-on wrencht'- manufactured back in 1920, the year the company was founded. The set consisted of five different size wrench handles and ten sizes of interchangeable sockets, and well served the needs of auto mechanics of almost 40 years ago. At present, there are approxi- mately 4,000 items of tool equip nient listed in the Snap-on cata log, and the company has a pro duction and distribution .staff o more than 2,000 people in thre domestic factories and two for eign plants. There are branch offices in 50 cities in the U.S. anc Canada. (Snap-on foto - UD1V engraving). Today's Snap-On Tool Set .The large Snap-on set shown above typifies the wrench and hand tool equipment required by individual mechanics today for standard service operations on modern cars and trucks. New tools are constantly being born pn the Snap-on engineering drawing boards. »One of the more glamorous uses for Snap-on wrenches is on racing cars in the Indianapolis 500 mile classic. The company is right in step with the sports car trend, too, producing wrenches today in metric and Whitworth sizes to service foreign makes. Ww.C. Marty Service Held Friday/Apr. Lu Verne .—.,.

Weidenhoff Originated Ideas For Firm In 1919 The history of the "Weiden- hoff" name* as related to automotive testing equipment, stretches back about the same length 01 time as the "Snap-on" name, as related to special tools. Jos. Weidenhoff was one of the first in the field with electronically-based equipment for testing such auto items as generators, igntion systems, etc., although in those earlier days such systems were far from being as complex as they are today. The first Wei- denhoff equipment was introduced in 1919, and it was manufactured in unbroken line since then. Because of its prestige in the automotive field, the name has been retained in the Weidenhoff Corporation, now a wholly-owned subsidiary of Snap-on" Tools. In turn, Weidenhoff products maJe here are finding a complete new scope of outlet in national and world markets, through the 54 branch sales offices maintained; by Snap-on Tools Corporation. 41 of these branches are in the U.S., 10 in Canada, the rest in Ha\vaii, Puerto Rico and Mexico. In these branches there are a total of 925 men involved in market and sales operations. This represents an addition of 6 new branches since 1955, and others are contemplated. To serve the special require ments of Railroad and other large industrial accounts, and for Government orders, the company maintains a special Industrial Division in Kenpsha, Wise. The increase in business in foreign markets has necessitated the establishment of the International Division, also. Appointment of Art Schweppe to tha airport commission was approved. Building permits were granted to John Zeller, K. I. Forbes, Chris Miller, Lenora Hiltz. Building permit submitted by Earl Sprague was rejected. Uniform Building Code was discussed at length.
