The compact and highly precise circular saw with a low investment for DIY woodworkers and craftsmen. The Minimax SC 3C is a single-phase 4.8Hp motor slider that comes standard with scoring and can accommodate a 12” blade. Featuring a 5.5’ crosscut capacity that is ideal for processing panels, DADO capability, and 45° blade tilt.

The Minimax SC 3C can accommodate a large, 12” blade without removing the scoring blade. When not using the scoring, it can be dropped below the table easily. Scoring adjustments are external, no tooling. The Minimax SC 3C also has 3/4" DADO capability.

Featured standard scoring 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 intend 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.

The Minimax SC 3C has a thick, cast-iron knuckle, to which the extruded aluminum rip fence is attached. It rides on a large 45 mm rectified steel round bar, and is locked in place with a cam design for maximum rigidity. It micro-adjusts into place via a rack and pinion design. This machine also comes with a separate miter gauge for miter cuts. This way, 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.

Also featured is an additional table on the slider to assist in supporting larger panels. The sliding table lock allows the slider to be locked when pulled away from the blade that makes loading panels much easier. The Minimax SC 3C comes standard with two flip stops on the crosscut fence and two hand wheels for operating unit movement. One on the front of the machine for the main blade, and one on the side of the machine for your scoring blade.
