Mafell were founded in 1899 and claim to be the inventor of the first electric carpentry power tool, a chain mortiser invented in 1926. They now produce arguably the world’s finest and most complete line of portable timber framing tools from their only production facility in Oberndorf am Neckar in Stuttgart, Germany.

This factory is set apart from others as Mafell manufactures nearly every component for their tools in-house to the highest quality standards. Using state-of-the-art CNC machines, advanced plastic injection molding equipment, and the most advanced electric motor manufacturing systems, Mafell has a fully integrated manufacturing plant and over 250 long-term employees who produce truly great tools.

Mafell tools are built for heavy-duty continuous operation under extreme conditions. This toughness, combined with lightweight alloys and advanced technical innovations, results in long-term precision and performance. They are also one of the only manufacturers in the world who manufacture circular saws to accommodate blades up to 640mm in diameter!

There are currently no Mafell distributors in Australia, but Australian compatible products can be sourced through Timberwolf Tools, a North American tool supplier who specialise in tools for framing and carpentry.
