    So, I asked Pegas about pricing and such, and they had one of their vendors in the U.S. contact me. I've never heard of these guys, but here is a link to these clamps on their site: https://qtena.com/pegas-scroll-saw-b...et-p-9607.html

    After shipping, the price was over $90, which is really too much for this I think. Hopefully they will come down a bit on those prices.


    In any case, I did order this to try/review.

        D & D are big sellers of Pagas blades. I wonder if they will carry this for a lower price.

          I sent D & D an email asking. I also called Bear Wood who confirmed that they will also be carrying these for $90 + S&H, so I'm thinking we are going to be stuck with that $90 price point. Sigh, even if these are a lot better, that price will cause folks to pause and hinder adoption. . . . but for me, I spend a lot of time on the saw, so if it makes my time more enjoyable, it will be worth it to me.

          I also have some exciting news on the Hawk 3rd party front . . . . coming soon.

            If they are really an upgrade and work great, that is only around $30 more than buying a set of the original clamps. If they work better, last longer..... not so far out of line, price wise.

              It is probably like Festool where the price will be the same everywhere you go. Hawk 3rd party?

                Randy,

                I bought my EX21 about three years ago. I have already replaced the jaws once and I am about ready for another replacement. Considering the that frequency of replacement. $90 dollars is a bargain..

                  When you say it that way, it doesn't seem so bad :-). I hope they really are better. It still takes quite a while to wear out the older style clamps, so assuming the Pegas clamps work great out of the gate, it will take some time to determine if they last as long.

                  I heard back from D&D and they were starting to looking into these clamps.
