Carette Compressor
« on: May 03, 2017, 04:08:48 PM »
Anyone have one of these or know of someone who does.  The in-depth report from Guy Kuo makes it look like a good option.  JoeB is the US distributor.  However, I cannot find any other reviews or reports.

Yes, I have one.  I was one of the early birds and received my compressor about 2 weeks ago.  I have only used it once so far this past weekend, but I can honestly say that I am impressed with the unit.  I bought this because of the teardown from Guy Kuo and can say it is living up to its expectations.  It is definitely an improvement from my Shoebox Max which has served me well for the past 5 years.

In Guy's teardown video he kept saying the materials used were not the materials that would be in the production machines.  Have you noted anything that wold indicate the materials used were improved over the test unit?

The appearance of the compressor does differ slightly from his teardown, although I am not going to go into the insides like he did since I am not very knowledgeable in such things.  However I can tell you that it is built very sturdy and when it is running, is sounds like a typical sewing machine in terms of noise level.
