I believe..

This is Apex's first canister, they made a similar machine for Wards, which I would love to find.

Steel Wheels...

A unique idea that works well, but is very noisy, the wheels are set in a ball bearing race, and when you move it it sounds like a bunch of bb s rolling around!!

4250 Lamb motor dated 1952, the Strato was not introduced until 1953, the motor in it is unique , and was only used in the Strato Cleaner, all other Apexes, tanks, Dyno Cleaner and Aero Cleaner, used the Lamb motor.

OH how cool! The webbed paint was used on a lot of Apex's machines for a long while wasn't it?

The wheels may be noisy, but they would go in any direction!

Nice Hans.....

Webbed Paint!

Yes, in red or blue, about all the 40s uprights are painted with it.
