I have a scmi basic 2 edgebander thats getting worn out and looking for a good used one . The basic 2 I have doesnt have scraper and buffer stations . I want that with the next one I get . Looking at a 2007 scmi S -212 , havent seen in person , but says its in excellent condition . Does anybody have one of these and will a scraper and buffer station get my doors dang near free of any extra cleaning work on panels ? Any info would be great or any advise on edgebander they have and performance of . Guy is asking 18k for the scmi and will take 3k for mine , seems like a pretty decent deal if its as clean as he says.
I have never heard of that model scm but i would be scared of any used edgebander. Sounds like even if it is good it is overpriced its only about 1/2 what a new machine would cost. It would only take a few parts to replace or downtime to cover those dollars saved.
I have 2 italian machines. An omga chop saw and a Si 400 sliding table saw (2013).
We have an SCMI Basic 2 as well and interestingly ... it does have buffing at the end. Found it used, but did need attention as the previous owner(s) didn't take great care of it. Took a few weeks on and off (of inhouse) troubleshooting and under $400 in parts, but got it purring. Indeed, manuals aren't great from SCMI. The 'dialing in' process certainly tedious for sure. As I've read elsewhere, have one operator who's responsible for the machine as multiple people just won't maintain the continuity in maintenance. I think there are used machines, with life remaining that can be acquired for a decent price. Just need to find them. In my limited experience ... I find that sellers ask way more than their equipment is worth, and you need to counter their asking price, bringing them down (if they're willing) to reality.
