  • S.A.E.?

    I've seen wrenches sized in Metric, Whitworth, and, more commonly in the States, S.A.E. I have always assumed S.A.E is an acronym. If so , what does it stand for? I'm sure someone knows.

      I would have never guessed that. I hope you won't be offended if I ask for someone else to confirm that.

        The letters SAE stand for the Society of Automotive Engineering. The SAE was founded in 1905 by Andrew Ricker and Henry Ford. At the outset, its sole aim was to provide an umbrella organization for the scattered automotive engineers who usually worked alone in various parts of the country.Nov 18, 2015

          Thanks to both of you.Did the tools in these sizes already exist before 1905? If so, what were they called then? Were Ricker and / or Ford responsible for the standardization of these tool sizes? Did Metrics come first?
