Image of Lightning Arc Apple Parer with Foot to Guide Pion Gear Along the Rack

Lightning with "Foot"

This version of the Lightning has a "foot" to help guide the handle/fork assembly around the arc. The foot appears in the White, an earlier arc parer. It is unclear if the foot was part of the earliest design and abandoned or an experiment for later models.
