    Donít think so. No Jet machinery on their website any more, but Laguna, Woodfast, Sawstop.

    Check out Jet tools' website. You can see their Australian Distributor.

    Track them down through the Jet site and they are in Archerfield QLD, go to their own web site (c 2018) and they are in Bendigo Vic. Same contact email address though.
    I used to be an engineer, I'm not an engineer any more, but on the really good days I can remember when I was.

    I was told that the reason CarbaTec don't sell Jet anymore is that Jet have said if you want a bandsaw you have to buy a container load and that goes for each and every type of machine. Now we are talking a huge investment to make before you have sold a single machine, so who is going to make that call. I thought that CarbaTec would be big enough to maybe afford to do it by splitting up a container between their stores around Australia but it seems not. I feel this will be the end of Jet in Australia when current stocks run out.
    Power corrupts, absolute power means we can run a hell of alot of power tools

    Well, they've certainly brought it on themselves....

    As an owner of several JET machines, purchased over the years from (I think) a different supplier every time, support and supply of spares from their head office has been consistently dismal.

    JET thrived before the current round of alternative reasonable quality brands were readily available here (e.g. Harvey, Laguna), when the alternatives were really just Carbatec own brand and H&F at that end of the market. Pretty much as soon as some viable competition turned up, they were done for.

    Definitely better value for money elsewhere now.
