Well, we haven’t seen these posters in a while! These, in particular, are the remains of a “man cave” that were evidently taken down when the wife decided that enough was enough! Reluctantly, he let them all go for one price at a yard sale! That was how I got my hands on a ton of posters that will probably never be seen again. I’ve searched the internet and found only a few of these hot babes (who apparently enjoyed being in a bikini while operating their industrial strength power tools and equipment…) which makes this the largest collection that you will find, in one place, online.
Even so, there’s no real preservation going on with these posters as they were all well worn with holes due to being placed and replaced on the walls of one man’s garage over the course of 30 years. So, the best that I could do was photograph them and preserve them here on PrintFromVintage.com.
Vintage Tool Girl Calendars From the 80s & 90s
Many of these posters were double sided and one of them even has a signature from the Tool Girl featured on the white bikini poster. Apparently, these women were chosen to be the official (sexy) representatives (models) for these companies and were often present at trade shows, signing their posters for the men who used these tools. Obviously, these women were far from inclined to use any of these tools themselves and when you take a look at some of these posters, you will see how ridiculous they look posing with some of them. Also, there’s nothing about these posters which indicates the quality of the tool but for whatever reason, that did not matter. These days, people are less likely to be swayed into purchasing these tools based on these posters alone but don’t forget that they doubled as calendars so that they served a purpose on the walls of any man’s garage or shop for an entire year! Now, let’s start with some of these posters from the 80s:
1986 Calendar Poster Pin Up Tool Girl – Makita
We all recognize this decade from the hair alone but when combined with the high cut bathing suit, it’s a classic 80s girl look!
1987 Makita Power Tool Girl:
That’s a big drill for such a little lady!
Early 80s Rainbow Bathing Suit:
No date on this poster but when combined with the rest, my guess is early 80s and that’s because of the 70s vibe that it still has.
1993 Page Langton – Makita Power Tool Girl:
She was a model and fitness queen who obviously got this gig as a Makita girl!
1992 Makita Power Tool Girl – It’s All The Power You Need!
She wears this drill on her imaginary holster.
Makita 1987 Power Tool Girl:
They must have had some training on how to hold these power tools.
1989 Miss Makita Eastern Region – Donna Stokes:
That looks like a pretty uncomfortable seat but she does look pretty in pink!
Makita Generator 1991:
This would be the place in which a generator would come in handy.
1982 Calendar Girl:
A beautiful setting for a beautiful lady!
The Prettiest Power Tool Girl – 1992:
Out of all the hotties in these posters, this lady is the prettiest and it’s not just based on how she’s holding the drill. . .
1989 Makita Power Tool Calendar Poster:
A lot of these posters show plenty wear from being pinned up and relocated several times.
1989 Makita Power Tool Poster Calendar:
She’s climbing this short ladder to success as a power tool girl!
1990 Signed Poster – Makita Power Tool Girl Sophia:
Her last name was ripped off the bottom of this poster. She signed it: Sophia
1984 Power Tool Girl:
Her ability to model and prepare to power screw at the same time is amazing!
1989 Power Tool Girl With Rainbow Bikini:
She’s sanding down this vintage, blue chair to paint it pink!
1982 Power Tool Girl Suzy Q. with Fringe Bathing Suit:
She looks more like Pocahontas and apparently, she doesn’t even need a power tool to be the poster girl for Makita Power Tools!
1981 Power Tool Pin Up Girl:
Another pretty lady holding a big drill!
1993 Page Langton with a Makita Generator:
This woman did a lot of modeling for this company!
1991 Power Drill Makita Pin Up Girl:
Barefoot and ready to drill out massive rocks that stand in her way!
1986 Power Tool Girl:
She looks cute in yellow and the yellow butterfly in her hair is a nice touch.
Makita – It’s All The Power You Need:
Cordless would be the way to go when you’re working in your hot pink bikini trimmed with yellow. No date on this poster but I’m willing to bet that it’s from the 80s.
1985 Hard Hat Power Tool Girl:
We can hardly believe that she’s standing standing on iron in high heels. No Ironworker is capable of doing this!
1993 Page Langton:
Just another sexy day around the home, fixing up whatever needs to be done! No time to button the shirt. . .there’s lots of stapling and drilling to do!
Not a tool poster – But a Dust Poster:
This California Car Duster Company spared no expense when it was time to advertise for their product.

The waterfall and yellow bikini are essential selling tools for this product.

This is a big job and all it takes is this little sprayer to do it.

Just fixing up some things before going on a night out!

1991 Skil Professional Power Tools Poster:
The 90s are starting to be a letdown. . .
1988 Skil Calendar Poster Pin Up Girl:
The perfect outfit for the job. . . Love the jean skirt!
1991 Skil Professional Power Tools Poster Girl:
Oh my! There’s just too much here that needs to stay in the past! Not a fan of the jeans in this photo. I also don’t like the hair or the face on this woman! Even the jacket is pretty bad except for some side boob. . .
