The Minimax FS 41ES X is a professional grade, heavy duty, long bed jointer/planer combination machine designed to meet the needs of the most demanding environments. It features cast iron tables, a tilting fence, and breakthrough “XYLENT” technology. This technology gives an exacting finish while reducing ambient noise decibel output significantly.
This 16” cutterhead version comes with a spiral knife cutterblock with 3 series of knives. These knives are 4 self-locking and self-centering screw knives. 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. With each cutterhead you will also receive 1 dynamometric key for the correct and safe use of the locking mechanism (think of a mini torque wrench), as well as two inserts for the dynamometric key.
The Xylent Maintenance Kit was 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 15x15x2.5 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.
The standard guard offered on the Minimax Jointer/Planer Combination Machine is a spring type guard which always covers the unused portion of the knife. Other European style guards require the guard to be manually moved into place when the fence is readjusted. When processing thick wood, this does not cover the blade as completely.
For a maximum long lasting stability, the cast iron thicknessing table lifts on 4 spindles with trapezoidal threads dust protected. The Minimax FS 41ES uses a dedicated planing fence extremely rigid and smooth, thanks to a support with central round bar.
The ES series adopts ergonomic solutions like the 2,200 mm jointer tables, in ribbed cast iron, that allows for the simultaneous opening towards the inside of the machine with a 90° angle. For maximum long lasting stability the cast iron thicknessing tables lift on 4 spindles with dust protected trapezoidal threads.
