Plomb

[pluhm]
Plomb is a village and commune in the Manche département of north-western France.

Plomb is also the name of an American tool company that used this name from 1907-1949. Alphonse Plomb was one of three founders of the Los Angeles tool company, and since he had the shortest name, his name was used for marking the tools. Plomb tools became PROTO tools, with the changeover occurring in the mid to late 1940s.
