  • Description

    Sliding table panel saw with tilting blade for demanding craftsmen and carpenters, which combines working accuracy with ease of use and saving.
    The prefect entry-level production machine for small cabinet shops or serious hobbyists. Affordable, without compromising quality. Solid cast iron saw unit with double trunions and independently adjustable scoring unit. Same 51″ rip capacity and micro-adjustable rip fence as all other Minimax sliders. Available with either 5.5′ or 8.5′ sliding table. Our #1 selling sliding table saw.

    A perfect cut result is guaranteed by the saw unit constituted by a mighty, cast iron structure. Great work piece stability during machining with the large squaring frame, dimensions 1100 x 650 mm. Customisation for every demand of use, with the anodised-aluminium sliding tables with 1660, 2310, 2660, 3260 mm strokes.

    Our brand new sliding table saw, the Elite series has proven itself in American cabinet shops for many years. This machine boasts a full 8.5’ stroke, and features normally found on much more expensive machines, for a fraction of the cost. See for yourself why the SC4 Elite 8.5 foot machine stands in a class of its own.

    The new saw unit closed loop structure is made of a heavy cast iron and is supported firmly under the table by two lateral supports in a crescent shape. These solutions give strength and rigidity, guaranteeing perfect cutting results. The saw unit can be equipped, on request, with scoring blade for perfect cutting even on veneered panels. The scoring blade is an optional available in two versions: with belt transmission from the main motor and with an independent motor 0.75 HP (0.55 kW). The maximum diameter allowed for the main saw is 315 mm with scoring blade mounted.

    Optimal support also to larger pieces, with the sliding table 360 mm wide. Exceptional precision and smoothness: to secure the guides it is not used glue, since the thickness could affect sliding. They are secured with a procedure of aluminium riveting. Panel loading is easy on the large squaring frame with an idle roller at the end. The telescopic squaring fence with two reversible stops can be used to square panels measuring 3200 x 3200 mm and for miter cuts at up to 45° on both sides of the frame. The support of the fence can also be equipped with a digital readout with the sensor running on a magnetic band.
