Comments:
I saved this from the owner's trash after doing a gable and roof repair in Sterling MA. The only product info is POLY PRODUCTS PASADENA cast into the front and wheel guard pieces. The inside of the wheel guard has D12 cast into it. The body and wheel guard is made of a nonferrous material, probably cast aluminum. There is a brass friction fitting on the wheel guard indicating that maybe a stream of water or air was applied during grinding. It has an integral 3 speed pulley for v-belt drive. The existing wheels are between six and seven inches and the maximum capacity would be an eight inch wheel.

Maybe someone on the West coast has seen this brand before. Any info on age etc. will be appreciated.
