Torpedo Freilauf pin

£45.00Price

The inventor of the Torpedo freewheeler was Ernst Sachs and was born in Konstanz, Baden. Both parents were of Swabian descent. The father was an Engineer and invented a combined drilling and sawing machine. Ernst's youth took place on beautiful Lake Konstanz. In his childhood days, owning a “steam engine” was his dearest wish, which was finally fulfilled thanks to the generosity of an uncle from Zurich. Little Ernst turned the steam engine into a ship engine for a screw steamer, which then circled on the shores of Lake Constance to its fellow students' amazement under its own steam. At the elementary school, which the young Ernst attended until the age of thirteen, he did not rise above the average.
