There was some items I wanted on
eBay but they were in a lot of other stuff that's also
instering, so this page will be for stuff that doesn't fit an
I think used for perfume.
De Vilbiss made paint spray guns and related air compressors to drive them. They used the same principle as these atomizers.

The vast majority of the patents
filed by A. De Vilbiss were related to Toledo scales.
My grandmother had one that clamped to the kitchen table and I used it to peel and core many apples for use in a pie.Johnny Appleseed (Wiki) "...he was bringing the gift of alcohol to the frontier." The water in many places was not fit to drink. But hard cider was safe. That lead to Prohibition (Wiki).
Found one made by Reading Hardware with a number of patent dates.
There are a number of functions and the more of them a machine does the more time it can save.
All the machines I've seen require a human to push the apple onto a fork and in a way that the axis of the core goes through the core.
Peeling (paring): removes the skin. Not all machines do this well on every apple. It a piece of skin gets stuck under the cutter blade it will stop working so needs to be cleared by the operator.
Slicing: A blade typically makes a spiral single long slice. If you need visually appealing slices a single manual cut will provide them. On some machines this blade can easily be removed if slicing is not wanted.
Coring: Removes the core as a cylinder.
Extraction: a shoe kicks the apple off the fork. If a machine has then feature there should be a way to have a container below to catch the finished apple.
Speed of Operation: Depends a lot on how well the machine works. If it fails often then the handwork required to fix the mistakes lowers the throughput.
