    From Wikipedia:
    Aluminum alloy 7075 is an aluminum alloy, with zinc as the primary alloying element. It is strong, with a strength comparable to many steels, and has good fatigue strength and average machinability.

    That is just awesome. I leaned something cool today.

      Bob,

      Thanks for the material composition info.

      I now have nearly 35 hours of operation since I installed the Pegas blade holders. It is a vast improvement over the OEM.

      Prior to this upgrade, I was seriously considering replacing my EX21 because of the lower blade holder issues. Now I can look forward to many more years of use.

        You should ask Pegas if they plan to sell the Pegas branded saw in the U.S. They have created an awesome looking saw. If they want to take their saw to another level, they need to fix (or remove) the dust collection, then they would have a real competitive advantage.

          Randy, get one. Only a little over $1116. + shipping America, without stand. I was looking at pictures and there is a power switch in the upper arm like normal but also one in back by the motor. Would that have something to do with the difference in electrical power? A converter, maybe?

            Yeah, to be competitive, they would need to compete on price also, and bulk ship/sale to a vendor. I already have the older green saw with the better table (no dust collection), so I would not be their target buyer, unless mine dies. Since I only use my EX for coins, I would go with the 16" for a smaller footprint.

              Right now, according to Grobet/Pegas, "our scroll saws are NOT available for the U.S. market.

              As for the other question about a switch on the motor. This was installed due to the CE regulations."

                Just ordered my set. The Jet is a bear to bottom feed with the table at a sharp tilt. Still love my Hegner, but if I'm going to have a back-up saw, I'd prefer it be as good as it can be.

                Thanks, Bob, and everyone else for the invaluable information. I took a quick look at the Jet, and it does look like a simple swap.

                  Mindy switched out a set yesterday on one saw. She says be sure to use a socket for the nut side; an adjustable wrench makes it challenging!

                      RJ, check on the earlier posts. Randy posted a link which Fibber used successfully. It’s for a place called QTE North America. Ships from NJ.

                          Rolf,

                          Having been in your shop, I have a couple of questions. Are planning on a major expansion to your shop? If not where would you put all of the equipment?

I can not find a vendor that could help me out.I wish had a customer service so you could get some help when needed. When lever flips up it breaks or bends blade so you have to replace it. This is a shame that you can't get any help when you have a problem from Pegas.I have a Excalibur 21.
                                Send a Private message to BobD on this forum. He has a contact with Pegas. Please keep us posted on your situation.

                                  First, follow the instructions on the can, regarding wait time between coats. I would think that for the first couple coats, re-applying while the previous coat was still tacky wouldn't be terrible, but I would warn that building several coats without allowing proper drying time, will extend the overall,...

                                  I use wipe on poly quite often and I apply 2 thin coats before sanding with 220 or 320. I wipe with a lint free. Someone told me not to use tack cloth as you can leave behind a wee bit of beeswax witch could cause issues later on.

                                  I make sure that the surface is dry and not tacky before...

                                  Question, when sanding polyurethane in between coats, using a tack cloth, is it ok to wipe on poly while the project seems tacky or should a person wait a few hours to let it dry?
                                  How necessary is it to sand between coats of polyurethane? I am sure people have a lot of different opinions and...
