Ironco/Polaris Equipment Info?

Does anyone have any general information on the oldschool Polaris equipment?

What time frame are they from? Where were they made? And most importantly what’s up with the Star shape cam lol

Ironco/Polaris was heavily advertised in many of the muscle magazines back in the early to late 80’s. They were headquartered in southern California (Spring Valley).
Can’t comment on the star shape of the cam other than the equipment’s logo/name referencing the North Star (Polaris).
This company was initially seen as a potential rival to the Arthur Jones/Nautilus empire, though it ultimately fell well short of knocking Jones off the block.
