The Minimax TW 55es is the culmination of years of experience in manufacturing quality solid wood SCM products. This 4- speed heavy duty machine is standard with both a sliding table and tilt! The slider has hardened steel guide ways and precision bearings, so it incorporates the exact technology found in SCM's top selling sliding table saws! The hood has memory pins so if removed, it will go right back into the same position, making this shaper accurate and repeatable.

The Minimax TW 55es has a wide sliding table that rides on hardened steel guideways. The design is the same that we incorporate into our high end sliding table saws. The sliding table greatly increases the shaper’s versatility, and makes tenoning operations as easy as can be. Raised panel doors are also facilitated on the sliding table shaper.

The tilting arbor shaper makes this machine even more versatile over the long term. The shaper tilts backwards making it possible to use a powerfeeder more effectively while tilting. A large shaper hood has three controlled axes. The shaper hood has memory pins so that it easily goes right back to the same position if removed from the table. This makes changeover much quicker.

The Minimax TW 55es comes with a miter gauge with flip-over stops for angled cuts and eccentric clamp. The flip-stops adjust along the fence for repeatable accuracy by creating easy to use reference points, while the eccentric clamp securely holds the workpiece in place.
