CP these days mean Chicago Pneumatic. Harbor Freight?

Chicago Pneumatic is also pre-Harbor Freight. They have been making air tools for a very long time in the USA or at least used to. I don't know how companies get away with using other companies logos but I believe CP at Harbor Freight actually stands for Central Pneumatic.

I found it...made by Red Cross Manufacturing out of Indiana. Began as windmill manufacturer and then, when prohibition hit in 1918, they started producing cider presses. I'm trying to whittle it down to a specific model now.

There were a number of these made in bulk and sold through Montgomery Ward and Sears as well as a large St Louis hardware outfit called Simmons. Castings were made by third party and simply marked CP for Cider Press
