SCM's most popular combination machine for years sets the bar higher than any other manufacturer. This machine has proven itself in American shops countrywide. It boasts a 5.5’ sliding table (8.5’ also available), and has features normally found on much more expensive machines for a fraction of the cost. See for yourself why the Minimax CU 300C Combination Machine is the perfect solution for people who want quality equipment with a small machine footprint.
The CU 300C has a large blade group with scoring as standard. Easily mount a 12” blade with scoring. You can also mount a 3/4" dado blade for added versatility! The main blade and scoring blade raise and lower independently of each other. The CU 300C slider has hardened steel guideways with ball bearings for a smooth action, the same design on our larger professional equipment!
This machine comes standard with scoring. This allows you to not only accurately cut panels, but you can cleanly cut them too. This is important when cutting particle board, melamine, laminated panels, or anything else to which you want to apply some type of edge banding. If you are cutting solid wood, simply drop it below the table surface independently of the main blade. A 12” main blade capacity is featured without having to remove the scoring blade.
The separate miter gauge allows the user to keep the main crosscut fence at 90° and use the separate miter gauge to do the angled cuts, saving time when mitering small panels. The CU 300C also comes with a 4-speed shaper as standard equipment. The spindle is 1.25” diameter, and is interchangeable to allow for spindles of different sizes. You can easily use the Shaper in conjunction with the slider for a more versatile machine. Reversing is also standard.
The 3-knife Tersa head and the tables pivot on a large hinge which will never go out on you. The machine is repeatable so that it goes back into the exact same position each time. The Tersa knives automatically reference into position when the head is turned on. Removal of the knives is as simple as tapping down the wedge blocks and sliding out the knives. Since the knives are double-sided, they can be flipped over, reinserted, and used again.
A separate heavy-duty jointer fence is included, which mounts to a cast-iron knuckle and tilts up to 45°. This machine comes standard with a feature which allows you to use the post from the eccentric clamp to extend the ripping capacity of the sliding table saw of up to 32”.
The Minimax CU 300C also comes standard with a cast-iron mortiser. The mortiser has fluid vertical and horizontal movement with positive stops. A separate post is supplied to mount the eccentric clamp to secure your material. Also, standard is a Wescott Self-Centering chuck. The Minimax CU 300C comes standard with a mobility kit so that you can easily maneuver it into tight spaces. As heavy as it is, it is quite nimble.
