Milwaukee Electric Tool is celebrating its 80th anniversary this year. The company has been making its signature red power tools since 1924.
A.F. Siebert founded the company in Milwaukee, with the Hole Shooter, the first portable, one-handed 0.25-in capacity drill. It went on to create the Right-Angle drill in 1949, the Sawzall self-contained portable electric hacksaw in 1951, and the high-torque Hole-Hawg in 1970.
Today the company manufacturers more than 500 power tools and 3,500 accessories.
