37 Vintage Pin Up Tool Girls – 80s & 90s – Makita – Skil – Chapin – Hitachi

Well, we haven’t seen these posters in a while! They are the remains of a “man cave” exhibition from decades gone by. In fact, these posters were taken down from one such “man cave” in which the wife decided that enough was enough! Therefore, this guy reluctantly took down these posters from his garage but instead of throwing them all away, he let them all go for one price at a yard sale! This was my opportunity to get my hands on a ton of posters that will probably never been seen again. I’ve searched the internet and only found only a few of these hot babes who apparently enjoyed being in a bikini while working their industrial strength power tools and equipment made by Makita, Skil and others. . .

Also, there’s no real preservation going on with these poster and so they were well worn with holes as they have been placed and replaced on the walls of one man’s garage for about 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:

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.

18 Old Photos That Tell Us How Weird Life Used To Be!

As time passes, we begin to realize that our past is providing more evidence of our growth and that is absolutely true when it comes to these old photos. In fact, we are looking into a world that is radically different than our own and yet, not so much! Even so, these photos over the past century will have you in awe of all that we have been through and how far we have come. Take a look:

1. In 1933, officials needed proof that London’s double dutch busses weren’t a tipping hazard.

1

Clearly, the world is convinced that this bus is not a tipping hazard.

2. Before 1913, two children were mailed by rail and postman and that’s why the parcel post was introduced in order to outlaw this.

2

I guess these children needed to be somewhere else.

3. A mocking photo in 1919 about alcohol and prohibition.

Look at those faces!
