The Minimax SI 315ES has proven itself in American cabinet shops for many years. This machine boasts a full 10.5’ stroke, single-phase motor and features normally found on much more expensive machines, for a fraction of the cost. See for yourself why the Minimax SI 315ES stands in a class of its own.
The Minimax SI 315ES has a massive cast iron blade group. This large design lends extra stability to the main blade and scoring blade. The cast iron blade group tilts on two trunnions to lessen degradation over time, and the main blade and scoring blade raise independently of each other.
The thick cast-iron knuckle attached to the extruded aluminum rip fence rides on a large steel round bar. It is locked in place with a cam design for maximum rigidity. It micro-adjusts into place via a rack and pinion design.
The Minimax SI 315ES 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 scoring is belt-driven from the main motor.
This machine comes with a separate miter gauge with two flip-stops. This way, for miter cuts, the operator can keep the main crosscut fence at 90° and use the separate miter gauge to do the angled cuts, saving time when mitering small panels. It also features an additional table on the slider to assist in supporting larger panels.
Also featured is an an extra wide sliding table to assist in supporting larger panels, as well as the sliding table lock which allows the slider to be locked when pulled away from the blade, making panels much easier to load.
