My neighbour offered me this delightful saw. There are few markings. The top wheel states: 12" JB 7 the bottom wheel is 12" JB 6, everything else is 12" JB *something*. It is cast aluminium with a cast iron table. Nice machine that saws true. It runs well and can take a 1/2" to 1/8" inch blade. The blade length is 78".

The saw was actually manufactured by Henry Power Tools out of London, Ontario.
