Jigsaw Power Tool

Day 311 of My Italian Learning Journal*


I have a good collection of tool at home for do-it-yourself type of work. In my collection are two different types of jigsaw. I wondered who invented this handy power tool and searched the Internet. At Wikipedia I found the following: In 1946 Albert Kaufmann, an engineer of Scintilla AG company in Solothurn, Switzerland, replaced the needle on his wife's sewing machine with a saw blade. In 1947, after development of Kaufmann's invention, Scintilla started producing jigsaws under name "Lesto jigsaw".

Ascolta Questo:

  • Un geniale ingegnere svizzero ha inventato l'elettroutensile per seghetto alternativo elettrico.
    A very clever Swiss engineer invented the electric jigsaw power tool.
  • In primo luogo ha sostituito l'ago della macchina da cucire di sua moglie con una lama da sega.
    He first replaced the needle of his wife's sewing machine with a saw blade.
  • Un anno dopo la sua invenzione fu prodotta dalla compagnia dove lavorava Kaufmann.
    A year later his invention was produced by the company were Kaufmann worked.
Alla prossima!
