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
