Snap On Blue-Point
WHO WE ARE-Let's Introduce My-self
I inherited my grandfather’s Snap on and Blue Point tools. He worked at the Chevy plant in Kansas City in the 1940s and 50s. My original tools are from that period and they were basically something that sat in a box for 60 years.
I restored a number of cars (MGs, Olds, a 350SL, Corvettes, old Chevys, a 66 Ford, and many others) and started to buy tools as needed during these restorations. Most of the tools were Craftsman. One day I stumbled over the old box with my grandfather’s tools rediscovering them. I never used this set in part because it was incomplete.
I started to look around and fill in the set. Then I bought other Snap on period tools. I found a chart to date these tools. I started buying old catalogs. I wanted to know what was available and very little was written down. No resource, no master list, no book exists on. This was in 2003.
Today you will find a full set of Catalogs and an active forum in addition to the site.
