Machine overview

When you sign up, you can:


The SCM Minimax S 500P band saw (model MM20 in the US) is the second in SCM’s S 400 to S 900P series. It is the larger brother of the Minimax S 400P. It is nearly identical, but larger, with a cutting height of 500 mm instead of 400 mm. The Minimax S 600P is the larger version of this machine.

There are several options for more powerful motors, both single and three-phase, which combined with its large height capacity makes it especially suitable for resawing. The flywheels are nearly fully closed and made of cast iron, making them very heavy, which helps to maintain momentum during cutting.

The rubber tires around the wheels are attached with a tongue and groove system, making it very easy to replace them. This is much easier than glued on tires which is quite common on band saws.

The S 500P has several allen key bolts on all four bottom corners of the machine that allow you to set it precisely level on your floor to minimize vibrations.



What we like

  • Sturdy cast iron fence
