Hello,

Many years i did my sawing work on a festool table saw. I loved the machine but a heavier one was welcome. I also had a small chinees planing machine. I solded both and for the money i got i could almost buy an old europeen SICAR 5 in 1 machine. I considerd buying a new chinees combi but the sicar is an italian build machine from 1995. It has three motors each 3 KW (380 Volt) The machine was/is in bad conditon. Weight 495 Kg. From time to time I will tell my progression.

When I transported the sicar i didn,t make pictures but I got a one from the internet.
This is a identical one

I dismantled the complete machine and her are a few pictures:

On the last foto you can see the driving unit and its bad condtion, I gave it a yellow color.

Next week i hope to tell you more. Thank you for reading. Questions and comments are welcome!

My Dutch doesn’t exist, but you can use Google translate. I think you got a wonderful combi machine there. The Italians are know for producing high quality woodworking machinery. It will be fun to see you recondition it, although it actually looks to be in very good condition to me. I think combi machines are ideal for a home workshop. I have had an inexpensive 5 in one combi machine for the last 17 years and even though it has it’s limitations, I have gotten very good use from it and it continues to deliver.
