  • New Zealand buyers beware

    Due to the lack of importation of top quality scroll saws into New Zealand you really need to import your own to get one. If you are importing from north america you will need to get a transformer to cut down your voltage from 240 volts to 120 volts. If you do not do this you can damage your machine and you will automatically negate any warrenty.
    I imported a DeWalt, FORTUNATELY for me they have a built in fuse which is a great feature and meant I did no damage to the machine when I plugged it in. Since then I have got a transformer and am enjoying the hugh difference in performance from this machine compared to my old one.

    No retailer appears to be importing the De Walt into NZ but Carbatec have the Excalibur with the correct electrical set up; and also the middle of the road Triton

      How in the hell did you manage to plug it in ???????

      I also imported a Dewalt from the US a number of years ago and purchased a transformer locally. Runs like a top.

        Beware Carbatec seems to have pretty poor customer service.

            Good observation Scott! You found a mistake on my side

            The shop extension should read 11ft, not 13ft! I screwed up my conversion from cms to feet and inches.

            You had me worried though that I'd screwed up the placement holes for the uprights and cross beams so I just went...

            Just curious about the 13' extension. Building material, especially sheet goods are in 4' increments. Why 13'?...

            Hi folks - I really feel sorry for you people north of the border.

            Here in Central Mexico, apart from a couple of days at the end of January where we had a couple of showers in the evenings we have seen hardly any clouds in the sky during the day since the New Year and although we 've...

            Wow! - this a stunning piece!

            In particular the head is so lifelike it feels like if you got too close to this bird he (or she) would reach out and nip you with its beak....
