  • V Tools

    Chris Pye has posted a new e-book at his site about V tools. Everything you ever wanted to know about this great tool. Check it out at
    You can download it for free. I do very few carvings that I don't use at least one V tool.

    I downloaded the book and it told me everything that was wrong about my tools and when I got to the chapter on how to fix it, I was instructed to purchase a key that would allow me access to the last chapter. Chris Pye is a great guy and an outstanding woodcarver, but this tactic was kinda cheap.

      I agree Capt. This was like watching a two part movie. I had no indication it was a pay for view event either. Sorry about the tip...wasn't a good one I guess.

        in Chris's defense: if you had clicked on the 'full details' button on the download site it tells you that it is just a portion of the book so you can evaluate it's relavance before purchase. Perhaps it's these rose colored glasses I look through but I really don't think he was trying to be tricky or deceitful but rather helpful and honest. Yes I am a Chris Pye fan no I have not met him nor do I have any affiliation with him.

          The last time I visited with Denny Winter 2020, I had an opportunity to try out the PEGA Saw that Denny has set up in his store. I was extremely impressed with the saw performance. It will be the saw that replaces my EX21 when I need a replacement. When I visite Denny I was considering purchasing it...

          When I worked retail, we would have products plainly labeled "One rebate per address". And people would go ballistic six weeks later when their claims for three or four got shot down.
          Can't imagine if it had been in small print like the ads of today.

          Pegas Scroll Saw speed changes randomly
          by mccrookston
          First time posting.
          I have a Pegas Scroll Saw that is almost 2 years old.
          I saw about 1-2 hours a night right now and the speed will slow down and speed up on its own.
          Sometimes it will run full speed for a week and then switch to slow for a week.
          Any ideas on what might be causing...

          That is the one store I physically get sick as soon as I walk in. The odor of rubber is overwhelming and I’m good for 3 minutes before I have to leave. Sure glad other stores aren’t like that. Hmmm maybe my bank balance would be higher if they were.

          I wonder if their effort to offer better quality products may have something to do with it. Seems like they want to market themselves as something more than just a cheap tool supplier. Maybe reducing the number of things eligible for the big discount coupons is part of a campaign to change their image....
