Andrew Turnbull (1832-1930) and Rodolphus Lovejoy Webb (1830-1913) were granted letters patent for an, "Improvement in Fruit Parers" on June 10, 1873. Turnbull and Webb are listed as assignors to Landers, Frary & Clark of New Britain, Connecticut.

Turnbull and Webb placed gears underneath the turntable in order to prevent them from being clogged by parings. The push-off mechanism consists of a rack and pinon gear actuated by a projection on the turntable. Landers, Frary & Clark sold the design under the names Victor and Domestic.
