Help Needed to Identify an Unknown Table Saw
« on: July 25, 2019, 04:10:33 pm »
Here are a few photos of the table saw I spoke of earlier, that seems to share some general "feel" to the Pericaud tools of this thread shown here:
https://www.officeofsteamforum.com/videos-the-office-of-steam-cinema/jensen-no-5-and-pericaud-workshop/

A wonderfully well built tool that has several actual adjustments that offer fair precision would it be made to actually work ... which it appears fully capable of doing. No markings of any kind have I found on this piece, so anyone sharing any info would be greatly appreciated.

Cast base looks very similar to the Knapp buffing wheel, but I cannot find this saw...

Yes there are certain similarities, but not all that close. Don't know of Knapp myself, or their range of accessories, but that 914 looks exactly like the 314 that shows in a French catalog, which I took to be Pericaud, that Benny posted in his Jensen 5 and workshop thread that I linked in my first post in this thread.

No ID from me, but that's one of the best table saw models I've seen.

I agree Jim, it is one of the most heavily built accessories I've ever seen with very functional adjustments offering reasonable precision. This is definitely an amazingly "high end" toy steam accessory, making me think along the lines of Marklin, but no markings of any kind.

These are an earlier version I believe. Note the buttressed top of the base, and overall heavy and industrious feel. Could be.

I have some Knapp scans somewhere, I will see if I can find them and take a peek.

I don't think it is Knapp.  In doing some surfing, I came across this website:

I agree with Charlie, not Knapp. Pericaud I think merges with other manufacturers much like J Comby. At that point they seem to lose any "GP" marks and resort to "Made in France".

Closest I can find for you Daniel in the 1911 Catalog. Fence is on the wrong side, but drawings are not always the same as the models

Impressively detailed and well made, definitely one of the nicest tablesaw accessories ive ever seen.

Looks to me like BBToyz/Nick is spot on with the ID.

Thank you guys tremendously for sussing this out.

I've had this one for about seven years now, and even asked about it on other forums, but never ran across this Carette connection for some reason. The faint resemblance to some of the Pericaud tools got me to trot it out again and give it another go.

Glad I did!
