  • Pegas Blade Clamps

    I just ordered the package from Bear Woods. The EX21 was not holding the blades tight and now these tension lever keeps popping up. Yesterday I had to use the old DeWalt which still works fine.

    I hope you don't have the service that others are screaming about on another forum about Bear Woods. When I upgraded my EX I got them from D&D. You will love them.

      My experience with Bear Woods has been very good. Unfortunately the shipment has to go going through customs, and that was my only issue.
      Per tracking information, It took over a week from the time of arrival to departure from customs.

        Fibber the problem that is being talked about is the length of time it took them to ship and not the length of time it took to be processed by customs and the postal system.

          Scott,

          I purchased my upgrade from QTE North America back in early 2018. The items I have purchased from Bear Woods was blades and other miscellaneous hardware and their response was very prompt. That said, I have not made any purchases recently because of the customs issues. Perhaps their service has changed since I made my purchases.

              I got mine from Bear Woods and had no problems.
              When you get them installed, you will quickly fall in love with them.

              Too early to leave, too late to call in.

                I sent an email to Bear Woods stating my concern. Almost immediately I received a reply. They upgraded shipping and will ship today by UPS. Only problem, shipping will take eight days.

                  I ordered a set for my Ex from Bear Woods about a month ago and the shipping was very fast. No complaints here.

                    At least they shipped it the next day. No complaint about that. The UPS tracking says next Thursday.

                      QTE North America has them on sale for $85 for the full set for my Excalibur EX-16.
                      This is my first order with QTE so I'll let you know when they come in.

                      They don't have the new Pegas saws online yet, but supposedly they are being made in the same factory as the Excalibur brand, as referenced in SSWC's review by Bob Duncan on page 16 of issue 74 this month.

                      The new Pegas saws come with the new clamping system installed, but it's cheaper for me to upgrade my EX-16.

                      QTE also has the new clamp for the Delta, DeWalt ($60) and Jet ($35). Here is the link to their section of the site with the Pegas chucks:

                        I received the package on Thursday. I noticed I need a 7mm wrench. I will install them today.

                          If they didn't include it, here is a photo that is on the QTENA site that shows the proper tensioning position for the lever (at least on the Excalibur).

                          I seem to recall some folks having a problem there.

                            Actually too busy on Saturday, so I installed them today. I watched a short video and installed in a matter of minutes.

                              What a joy. I cut a test cutting project for SWWC today. The cutting on the EX21 with the new Pegas clamps went like a breeze. Not so much the glue up.
