Newman Demonstrates New Dresser
Louis Newman has been in tool and die work in the Bay Area for 35 years and is sometimes referred to as the "Daddy of the Industry." He has a reputation, at any rate, for genius in the field of product design and development. Louis is a stickler for perfection, and this is how the L. Newman Emery Wheel Dresser came into being.
For many years Louis felt the need in his own shop for improvement in grinding work. He sought a means to free the bond and eliminate checks in grinding wheels, and he wanted a roof that was easy to use and maintain. His first model-made some 3 years ago- was crude, but was found from the start to give more grinding per trim than any Louis could buy!
Newman started showing his dresser to various shop foremen, a n d e a c h wanted one for his own use. He distributed dozens throughout the Bay Area before he was certain he was going to manufacture on a production basis, but the demand has made it a must, and the L. Newman Emery Wheel Dresser is now launched.

*At the present time there are two models. One sells for $15.50 and is designed for surface grinding; the other is for cylindrical grinding and comes with either a vertical or a horizontal stand and sells for $35. Either dresser will trim any type of wheel, Louis says. Users and dealers are invited to contact 1.. Newman directly at 1001 24th St., Oakland.
