AFAICT, in the Rigid images the women wore clothes. While I would not run a pipe-threader in micro-jumper and cap, at least her gloves are tough, and she's not actually running the machine.

"Girlies" were widely used. Here's one with a spark-plug.

No, there was an obscure jacks and wrenches company in the 1950s with girlie-pix as randy as Playboy in the day. Full bosom, no pubic area, buck-naked. With a wrench. I can't find one at the moment and could not post it here. But if you have a Playboy from 1959, picture the centerfold with a mechanic's tool. There may be a mini-calendar on it but who cares?

The girls were clothed, but usually in clothing seen at a Florida beach, not a job site. Sometime later, Rigid had a Miss Rigid competition and the finalists were used in next year's calendar. Snap On had a similar calendar for a few years.
Tubelab, it's 5 year mission. To explore strange new tubes, to seek out new circuits and topologies, to boldly go where no tube has gone before......
