Penn Lathe Parer
first sight, this might remind one of the very successful White Mountain
apple parers (not exhibited in the museum) that were manufactured by the
Goodell Company. This parer is one of the early lathe models manufactured
by Penn Hardware Company. A latch, which is not complete in this specimen,
locks the threaded-shaft in place. Turn the crank and the apple is advanced
passed a stationary blade and run through a slicer. Once the apple is pared
it must be removed by hand. This parer is marked PATENT APPLIED FOR.
