Minimax (SCMI) stroke sander I bought at auction, super
The machine must have been a problem for a couple of
owners at least. I bought it as is, and my impression was
the seller had bought it the same way. The motors run
and it works fine.
The problem is the welder who did some of the fabrication
wasn’t reading the drawings correctly. The welder used
10mm plates where 15mm plates are needed. The previous
owners has tried bushing these parts with piece of hardwood.
This worked on one side but not the other because the
welder had messed something else up too.
I drilled out a weld to reposition a small part, welded 1/4”
pieces of steel onto the plates, and now the machine
operates as it should.
