This 16” Jointer/Planer combo machine offers power and precision in a compact size for any shop. With long jointer tables and a sturdy fence, this machine is a quality product, made in Italy, for a value price. Find out why this machine may be perfect for you.
The Minimax FS 41C X includes robust features, from the heavy duty 16” jointer to cast-iron tables and the breakthrough “XYLENT” cutterblock technology. The Xylent cutterhead is the quietest and most durable knife option, making it suitable for heavier cuts. It also improves dust extraction since it produces very small chips.
This machine comes with a kit designed to help you get the most out of your new Xylent cutterhead. With this kit you get one cleaning/degreasing liquid bottle for helping reduce resinous wood coatings. You will also get one dynamometric key set to 5.7 mm, two bit Torx T20, ten inserts of 15 x 15 x 2.5 mm, five M6x15 T20 screws, one brass bristle brush to clean the spindle with the mounted inserts and one steel bristle brush to help clean out the insert housings. All in a beautiful and functional hardback case.
Changing between jointer and planer is much quicker on this machine than other models. This is because there are two separate same-side dust collection outlets for the jointer and the planer. Also, it is not required to drop the planer table all the way down in order to change back to a jointer, saving you additional time. Lastly, when going back to using the planer function, you don’t have as much distance to travel to get to your planning thickness. The entire changeover process can be done in under a minute.
The FS 41C X has a separate jointer fence which rides on a rail mounted to the jointer table. The fence has a castiron knuckle and is tiltable to 45°. It also features a Jointer bed over 70”, a 16” width cutterhead, and comes with an USA OSHA-approved American guard. The planer is able to process up to 9” thick material.
