I picked this up today, 3.13.11, when I consulted with a friend about needing a pedestal for a grinder/buffer for the shop. The upper parts to include the pump, pulley wheel, swing out pulley guard and motor are in storage with the owner Matthew Kantar. The lower portion, incl the pedestal and tray have been repurposed to suit grinder/buffer. A deck, trunnion, files, an over arm assembly & hardware are MIA.

Some background info that I've found on it. I found the "Oliver of Adrian" website at: http://oliverofadrian.com/ . This firm has been in business since 1913. I called there and spoke w/Mary on 3.15.11, and she provided me with the following info: the filer was manuf. in 1966 and shipped to the then known as the: "Boys Vocational High School" in Bfl, NY which is now part of the Bfl or Erie Cnty school system and known as the "Bfl Alternative High Sch.". I don't know if they still have shop programs there or not for the grades 7-12. This model of machine was no longer made after 2007 and she believes that parts are still available, manuals, parts lists and more info is being sent to me. I have been able to upload manuals & info to the library.
