Image of Lockey & Howland's Tilt Split Frame Apple Parer

Tilt-Frame

Lockey and Howland further modified the "Split-Frame" by tilting the turntable. This allows the parings to fall onto the table, so that they do not clog the gears. Notice they went back to a raised frame and used the same mechanism for the push-off as described earlier for the Heavy Frame.
