There is a manufacturer's name "G.Sansoucy" on the saw but it isn't listed in the index. The band saw has been in the seller's family for a long time.It has belong to his father and before that to his grand father and has always been on that beautyfull and heavy cast iron base. The base has noting to do with the saw, there is a name plate on it (see photo no.6) it used to be a part of a gyroscope for warship during WW2.
The band saw has 14" wheels, the table is 17" x 17" and the blade guide his handmade with bearings.Maximum height of cut is 9 1/2". The guards are also handmade and I'm quite sure they are not originals. The blade is 100" long. A middle set of pulleys has been added (photo no.5) to transform the wood working saw to a metal working saw. There is only one slow speed.
