Image of Goodell 98 Apple Parer

'98

Goodell Company's Turntable 98 must have been very successful because they are common. The Goodell Company manufactured parers for Lockey & Howland and would eventually purchase their apple parer business. This parer has the same hand-driven gear design as the earlier Lockey and Howland parers. One might speculate that this design is a continued evolution of the Lockey and Howland Turntables or maybe it was inspired by the Reading 77 and 78? The parer is marked TURNTABLE '98 MADE BY GOODELL CO. ANTRIM, N.H. U.S.A. PAT. MAY 24, 1898. The hand-driven gear rotates two spur gears to turn the fork. The turntable gear is inverted at an angle and above the apple. An incline or cam on the turntable gear activates a first class lever push-off.
