Default Fritzen Propellers

I worked with a Bob Fritzen who is 82 and now retired living in the Camarillo Ca. area. It was Bob's father who was the propeller builder. His products were generally acknowledged to be the best available and all the prominent aviation legends and air racers of the 1930's sought him out. When this business started slowing down, he found a second act making wooden propellers for movie studio wind machines. Bob told me that his father's propellers were acknowledged to be the quietest available. I remember Bob telling me about all the pictures that were in his Dad's shop, photos of the senior Mr. Fritzen will all the aviation legends of the time.
