Greetings to all,
First off, I am new to Lumberjocks and was very impressed with all of the welcome greetings I received from members when I joined. Thank you.
Now for the topic: I recently found a great deal on a Minimax FS35 jointer/planer (with mortiser). I have not picked it up as it is out of state, but I am anticipating that it will need a fairly thorough tuning and cleaning prior to being put to work. I have contacted Minimax and received a very poor owners manual and was told that parts availability would be hit or miss. Does anyone have such a machine or information about this machine.
I am optimistic that it will only need cleaning, rust removal, new belts, and sharpening of the knives, but the practical side of me realizes that it could be much more. It certainly would be nice to have a contact who has refurbed one of these machines.
Again, thanks for the warm welcome and I hope to hear from anyone who can help me out.
Regards, Joel Spencer
