Hello All,

I have decided to sell my Minimax FS41 jointer planer combo machine. It also comes with the mortise attachment and mobility kit. It has the Tersa head which allows one to change out the knives in about five minutes without any need for adjusting. I am looking at getting separate machines and will sell this machine first.

The jointer is a full 16” wide as is the planer.

The machine has low hours and is in very good condition with no rust. Always kept in a dry environment.

These are running about $9,000 plus with the mortising attachment.

Asking $4,200

I am in the Sacramento area.

Send me an email if you would like to further discuss it. Can take some photos also.

Thanks, John

Wow. That sure beats the living hell out of my JET 10” benchtop combo! I’m sure this will really please someone.

Hello all,

I decided to lower the price for this machine to $3,750

It has a 16” jointer and 16” planer. The cutter head is a Tersa head that takes disposable blades.

The weight is about 900 lbs.

It is in very good condition.
I finally got around to taking some photos.

Too bad you are so far away, that price doesn’t include shipping does it?

I wish you the best success with this – I’ve been fretting over the purchase of either this machine or the Hammer/Felder version. I’m on the Chesapeake Bay, about 2,500 miles from you.

Bummer. I was just looking for one and live about 250 miles away. I knew I should have checked here first.

Have your say...
