The company may have also used the name Henniker Machine Co. Their product was a sliding-arbor tablesaw called the "Versatile Saw", developed by Mr. Patenaude.
A correspondent, whose neighbour owns a Henniker saw, reports that the president of Shopsmith inspected the neighbour's saw; and Shopsmith subsequently introduced a similar, but inferior, saw.
The company is long gone, but at last report (2003 or thereabouts) some parts are still available. Write to Versatile Saw parts, P.O. Box 394, Henniker, N.H. 03242.
- This information comes from a couple of email correspondents plus a telephone conversation with members of the Patenaude family.
