As is often the case with Carba-Tec tools (FYI, Carba-Tec is Australia and New Zealand’s equivalent to Rockler), this is probably some other companies product that has been bought under licence and rebranded (this is common place – my Carba-Tec branded bench top mortiser for example, came with an Axminster user manual).

2HP Dusty - Great Value

2HP Dusty - Great Value

I’ve upgraded from the Carbatec 1HP FM 320 to the Carbatec 2HP CT-2042 1PH. This machine offers 1500cfm and is fitted with an optional 3 micron pleated cartridge.

I have tested it out jointing a few boards not only did it collect the chips very well you could also see the dust from 2” away from the jointer blades getting sucked back in. I believe it offers great value for money.
