    You will need more detailed pic's. It looks like one I bought last year in Indiana and I am restoring. My suggestion is to take several pictures of the spin basket. There should be the make of the manufacturer, and the state it was manufactured. I will check this post this evening, so hopefully you did more research by then. Based on the top bracket , and what I see it was probably made in Michigan, as it looks identical to mine, but again....give us more pictures. Cheers

    It has definitely had some modifications done to it. I can't find a name on it anywhere.

    I like the disk and wheel CVT setup to vary the basket's rotational speed. I also notice the lever operated strap brake. In all honesty, it looks like a homemade drive system added to and existing drum. Neat.
