Split-Frame Turn Table Apple Parer
Two versions of Goodell's split-frame design utilize a first class lever to tilt the movable part of the frame. A "lip" on
the turntable engages the movable part of the frame that acts as a first class lever allowing the pared apple to be pushed off the fork by the static part of the frame. Collectors call this version the "Heavy
Split-Frame" due to its massive construction (Thornton, 1997).
