MINIMAX Si 315es Panel Saw (PLU: 122401)

Circular saw with tilting blade with professional performances for a quality without compromises.

The minimax si 315es has proven itself in American cabinet shops for many years. This machine boasts a full 10’ stroke, and features normally found on much more expensive machines, for a fraction of the cost. This machine incorporates a top quality, American made, Leeson motor for 1ph shops. See for yourself why the minimax si 315es stands in a class of its own.

Top performances: cast iron saw unit with 315 mm saw blade and scoring unit with independent motor. Best support in all machinings, thanks to the 330 mm width sliding table. Maximum precision and stability with the blades lifting by means of “dove-tail” guides system and the saw unit tilting by means of two, large, lateral trunnions.


The S315 Elite S has a massive cast iron blade group. This large design lends extra stability to the main blade and scoring blade. The cast iron blade group tilts on two trunnions to lessen degradation over time, and the main blade and scoring blade raise independently of each other. Also visible in this picture is the separate scoring motor.

The S315 Elite S has a thick, cast-iron knuckle, to which the extruded aluminum rip fence is attached. It rides on a large steel round bar, and is locked in placed with a cam lock designed for maximum rigidity. It micro-adjusts via a rack and pinion design, and the fence has high/low positions.

The S315 Elite S features hardened steel guideways with ball bearings for an extra durable sliding table. The guideways are machined in place through a mechanical dovetailing system so that they stay true for the life of the saw.

The S315 Elite S comes standard with separate motor scoring. This allows you to not only accurately cut panels, but you can cleanly cut them too. This is important when cutting particle board, melamine, laminated panels, or anything else to which you want to apply some type of edgebanding. If you are cutting solid wood, simply turn off the scoring motor, and drop it below the table surface independently of the main blade. A 12” main blade capacity is featured without having to remove the scoring blade.
