"I have found the Adelaide branch of Carbatec fairly good to deal with. Bunnings are ok if it is in stock but special orders is on another level altogether, 12 weeks to supply a $1 latch for my mothers clothesline."

Kreg KWS1000 Mobile Project Center in Australia

Hello, has anybody in Australia managed to get hold of the Kreg KWS1000 Mobile Project Centre?
