Hello,
So… I am planning to go pro! And start my carpentry business, main production is going to be MDF doors. The machinery that I am planning to begin with are a combo planer/ jointer, a table saw with a slidepanel and a shaper. As I was searching the market I ended up with three options:

1) Casadei, total cost: what equals to 24,000 USD.
a. Casadei SC30P panel sizing table saw.
b. Casadei F205 tilting head shaper with sliding panel. ((WINNER))
c. Casadei PFS41 planer/jointer combo 16”.

2) SCM Minimax, total cost: what equals to 22,000 USD.
a. Minimax S315 panel sizing table saw.
b. SCM T110 nova shaper with fixed head.
c. Minimax FS30S planer/jointer combo 12”.

3) Shandong Gongyou (china) , total cost: what equals to 10,500 USD.:eek:
a. BJC112B panel sizing table saw.
b. MX5117C shaper with fixed head.
c. ML324 planer/jointer combo 16”.

I was really impressd with the Chinese cost but I am not sure about how long will it last! So if anybody have an experience with those three brands, I need some opinions please.

Damn R just looked into your posts. Are you not looking for a CNC machine also or is that one of the machines listed. You said MDF door fabrication correct?

The way of construction here is deferent than yours, all of our houses are made by block and concrete so door frames are made of lumber, thats way i need a jointer. CNC machines are way too expensive in here a totally cant afford it and its a big jump too start with. Thanks for the advice thou.
