We've certainly come a long way since in the last few decades. Nowadays we're accustomed to battery operated, wireless tools and machines to help us power through projects in and around our homes.
Hand-powered devices still continue to reign the tool box but thanks to modern machinery we don't have to spend an extensive amount of time and effort trying to do a simple task like hanging a picture frame.
If you were around before the 1980s, you may have an even greater appreciation for modern tools. The simple act of making a whole into a an object was a task that often tested your patience.

Prior to the availability of modern power tools, hand drills were used to manually create holes in different types of surfaces.
These types of drills date all the way back to the 1880s but throughout the years a variety of styles were introduced.
