IMPROVEMENT IN APPLE-CORERS.
Specification forming part of Letters Patent No. 185,902, dated January 2, 1877; application filed December 13, 1876.
To alt whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, JAMES FALLOWS, of Philadelphia, in the county of Philadelphia and in the State of Pennsylvania, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Apple-Oorers and do hereby declare that the thereof, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, and to the lettersof reference marked thereon, making a part of this specification.
The nature of my invention consists in the construction and arrangement of an applecorer, as will be hereinafter more fully set forth.
In order to enable. others skilled in the art to which my invention appertains to make and use the same, I will now proceed to describeits construction and operation, referring to the annexed drawing, in which Figure 1 is a side elevation of my improved apple-corer. Figure 2 is a view of the handle thereof.
My apple-corer is constructed of a tube, A,
end to form the cutters B B. In the side of the tube A, near the top, is an opening, 0, for the escape of the core. In the lower end of the tube A is an offset, a, so as to diminish the size of the hole near the cutting-end, thereby relieving the core from adhering to the corer by the juice of the apple. D represents a turned-wood knob, of suitable size, provided with a stem or shank, G, to fit in the upper end of the oorer-tube A, where it is held by indenting the tube in one or more places to force the metal into the wood. The lower end of the stem or shank G is beveled, as shown at b, at an angle of aboutforty-five degrees. This incline is directly opposite the opening 0 of the tube A, and forms a guide for conducting the core out through said opening.
This apple-corer is cheap, easily handled, and not liable to get out of order.
Having thus fully described my invention, what I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is-
1. The corer-tube A, formed with the sideopening 0, and end cutters B B, and provided with the offset a near its lower end, for the purposes herein set forth.
2. The wood-handle 1), formed with the stem or shank Gr, having incline b, as described, in combination with the corer-tube A, having side opening 0, substantially as and for the purposes herein set forth.
In testimony that I claim the foregoing I have hereunto set my hand this 4th day of December, 1876.
