To see how modern power drills are made, we'll visit the Milwaukee Tools factory, where they can produce a Magnum Power drill every two minutes!

The drill is the most popular portable power tool sold today. But long before we had electricity, man was finding efficient ways to make holes. The ancient Egyptians made great progress in this area, designing the first mechanical hand drill, the "bow" drill.

In the millenniums that followed, breakthroughs in drilling came with the invention of the auger, the brace and the gear drill, until, finally, the power drill was introduced in 1895. And then we'll take a look at the latest innovations in drilling, from the woodshop to the robotics lab.
