This company, which apparently dates back to the 1890s, was acquired by R. K. LeBlond Machine Tool Co. early in its existence. Cincinnati Electrical acquired Hisey-Wolf Machine Co. in 1949, and in 1962 they took over the Standard Electrical Tool Co (SETCO) line of grinders and buffers.

This company makes grinders and buffers. In the early 1900s they also made handheld power tools, including electric drills. The company closed its doors in 2017.
