Image of  Lockey & Howland's Split Heavy-Frame Apple Parer

Heavy Split-Frame

Lockey and Howland introduced a clever push-off. A "lip" on the turntable engages a movable part of the frame (interestingly disengaging the fork gearing). This part of the frame acts as a first class lever allowing the pared apple to be pushed off the fork by the non-movable frame. Collectors call this version the "Heavy Split-Frame".
