Wiggin has a long distinctive handle. C. Albert Wiggin's design is
a quick return.
All of the gearing on the returntable is on the underside to
prevent clogging. One turn of the hand-driven gear pares the apple and
snaps the returntable back to starting position. This parer is marked
AUG 4, 1868. A
second version of this parer was made without the post and spring for the
paring arm (the second version is pictured on the Apples page and can be
seen paring an apple in the Video section).
