    Default Where to get Jet parallel clamps???

    Looking to buy some parallel clamps and would like to give the Jet version a shot but I can't find anyone in Oz that stocks them (online at least!). Carbatec are the Jet agents and as they sell Bessey clamps I don't expect they'll be stocking the Jet versions any time soon. I would rather spend my money here but at this stage it looks like it will be easier for me to just buy them from the USA
    Anyone know where I can get some in Oz?????

    Default Jet Parallel Clamps

    TTIT,

    I got some sets from Gregory's as they were on special before the handover of Jet Franchise to Carbatec, but I have still been able to source Jet parts in stock from Gregorys after the handover.

    Have you tried contacting Gregorys and see if they still have unsold stock of Jet clamps.

    Cheers
    Scott

    Try Trend Timbers. They have had them at the show the last two years.
    Those were the droids I was looking for.

    Thanks guys I've emailed both of them to see what they have. Difficult when you live in the sticks if they don't show their stock online!

    Just a quick shout out to say how much I love my jet clamps. I bought mine from amazon quite a few years ago. They don't seem to ship direct to Australia now, but you could use a shipping service.

    I've heard a few others say the same thing which is why I want to try them!

    TTIT,

    Glad to hear Gregorys can help you out...thought they might.

    I may pop over this morning and see what they still have.....aside from your order. Always thought I should have bought more when they were on special

    Fortunately for me they are only 10 mins away


    UPDATE:
    Thanks for the reminder TTIT, just popped over to Gregorys and picked up 4x 50" Jet Parallel Clamps

    I totally shuddered as that kid on the above video ran that small piece of timber on the router table rounding bit, with just his fingers holding the ends. Never seen anything so scary! Could not watch the rest of it

    To be fair he does actually say in the commentary that it was the wrong thing to do.

    I know I've done way sillier things and lived to tell the tale. What would be the point of living if you never made mistakes and learned from them ?
