  • Pegas Blade Clamps for the Excalibur

    I recently purchase the Pegas Blade Clamps for my Excalibur. After installing them the blade tensioner constantly hits the bar when you turn on the machine to the point where it knocks it out of position make it lose tension. Anyone else having this issue or is it just me. I was thinking I maybe installed it wrong but heck there is only one way to install it so I am at a loss.

    NOTE: Found this problem addressed in another thread
    so never mind.

    If you go to the Tools and blade section there is a thread there about the new Pegas Bade clamps and in there is a picture of how to fix the problem.

          Odd, the Pegas clamp I installed on the Jet stops at the correct position for tensioning and cannot be pushed back further. Wonder if it has to do with the Jet, or if some of the clamps are defective.

            I don't think they are defective. I can push mine all the way back and have it lock on my EX-21. I have heard of it happening on a lot of EX's and Dewalts. So it must be something on the Jet that prevents it.

                Sad but seeing this trend more and more. I think there are several reasons. In general fewer people are interested in hand crafted goods made by local artists. They see what they like and buy it no matter if I was hand crafted locally or commercially produced. Second the made overseas stuff is cheaper...

                The set screw Carole mentioned is opposite the blade tightening knob. She is correct the screws will make the blade be off center. I had only one problem with the DW. There is a fitting on the end oif the motor arm. Mine came loose and made a racket. I followed the video you mentioned and it was very...

                Start by retracting the set screw fully on both upper and lower clamps, then turn them each the same amount until they have protruded enough to grab the blade when you tighten the thumb screw. If for some reason the blade is still not completely perpendicular, adjust them until it is. Should not be...

                A lot of fairs in this area are going back to the way it used to be meaning you need to submit pictures of your work and some equipment. A lot of promoters are also visiting craft shows and talking to vendors and asking them to apply for their show. this is my 3rd year at the howard county 3 day show...

                If my memory is correct you have a set screw on the left side of blade clamp and the thumb screw on the right side on both upper and lower blade clamps. If you do not adjust both set screws so they are the same (just proud of blade clamp slot), your blade will not be square.
