Carba-Tec becomes the Australian distributor for Jet woodworking tools.

Carba-Tec® is thrilled to become the sole distributor of JET Machinery in Australia and New Zealand. JET is a tried and tested  favorite of woodworkers everywhere and a market leader in quality and innovation. We are very excited to be able to represent a  brand with such a proven track record and are committed to providing quality sales and support to our customers and the JET  dealer network throughout the region.  

JET tools offer a full range of machinery to suit every stage of your woodworking project, including sawing, planing, woodturning,  sanding and dust collection. At Carba-Tec®, we are excited to be able to bring you some of the finest offerings available in  woodworking machinery.   JET has come a long way since its inception in 1958. The JET Tool brand was first introduced in Seattle. In the early stages it  mainly comprised of metal working machinery. In 1988 the JET Tool business was purchased by Walter Meier, a successful  Swiss-based tool and air conditioning system manufacturer.  

Walter Meier saw great potential in expanding the range of products into the woodworking field. They went on to develop JET  into one the most recognisable brands of machinery for professional furniture makers and woodworking enthusiasts worldwide.  When you browse through any of the vast array of woodworking publications both in print and online, JET machines feature  prominently. It’s a name that is rightfully trusted to deliver a high level of performance and precision to the craftsperson at all levels.  

Walter Meier have been committed to sourcing machines that reach the exacting standards required to wear the JET brand. They  are very “hands on” when it comes to research and development of new products and they maintain a regional presence in Asia  to oversee that the quality of manufacturing and finishing in all their tools is of the highest standard. JET machines are built and  tested to the finest tolerances to ensure consistent quality throughout the range.
