Union was manufactured by Whittemore Brothers, later D.H.
Decorative curves on the wheels interlock the gears. As one cranks
the main drive the blade passes over the apple. Within
the curves on the wheels reverse the direction of the paring
arm. A rod on the paring arm pushes it away from the frame,
apple can be removed. Apples can be pared in both directions.
To see a close-up of THE UNION embossing visit the Apple
our museum and look in Apple Anatomy under Apple Longitudinal-Section.
