  • pegas tool review

    looking hard to purchase the pegas my 30 yr old delta finally gave it up i don't know the rules but can i get a review of the pegas from someone - i don't like tools that break and wear out quickly so thats a big concern is it durable does it require constant maintenance ? i might add i have scrolled pretty intensively but took a holiday for awhile and now coming back to it i can easily run a saw four hours a day when i get going thanks for any help

      I am on multiple forums and face book pages and have heard no negative comments about the Pegas saws. Also the fact that many owners of saws that are similar to the Pegas Dewalt, EX etc. have replaced their original clamps with the Pegas version, says a lot to me. I have a used EX saw with those clamps and am very impressed.

        Yes, we are distributors for Pegas. Our demo saw is not worked to the extent you are talking about, so it is difficult to answer. For the times that I worked on the Saw it was a joy. Bob Duncan of Pegas May chime in on the thread.

          I agree with Rolf, I am a regular on a few scroll forums and have yet to see anyone so far who has been unhappy with their purchase of the Pegas saw. I have a not that old Seyco that I am happy with so I have not ventured down the Pegas road so cannot give you personal insight. I did put the Pegas clamps on my Seyco a while back. If I was looking for a new saw, I would definitely give it consideration though. Also remember, they are not that long on the market so no one can tell you for sure that you will get 30 years out of one with no issues. What I have seen and heard from those who have purchased one, I would not hesitate to get one. There are several Pegas owners over in the Village forum.

            Rickmeir, I purchased the Pegas scroll saw and received on Dec 3rd. I don't have a lot of cutting time on it yet but my personal opinion is to you or anyone.... don't hesitate to purchase this saw. I've owned two DeWalt saws for over ten years and sold one to upgrade to the Pegas. I do like the Dewalt scroll saws and will always own one, but the Pegas is definitely in a class by itself. Just AWESOME!!

                  Seeing your mounting set up (Wood Stand) is interesting. It make a strong statement about how smooth operating the PEGAS Scroll saw is.

                  I have an EX21 Anniversary model (6 years old). On advice from other users I bought the metal stand as well, which sits on a 6" thick concrete floor. Initially I mounted my Mag light to the stand, I found that there was way too much vibration for the Mag Light which produced fuzzy views. I since built a bracket which mounts to the wall for the Mag light.

                  Good Luck with the saw

                      Hey Kerf can you post a picture of the other side and maybe the back of your saw? I am interested in seeing your dust collection setup. Thanks.

                      I test drove one of those back in October. It is one sweet machine.

                        NC, Here are some pics. Nothing fancy but it works great for me One if the pics is the hub where the vac line comes down from the ceiling between both my new saw and my DeWalt . I formed some PVC connections to handle both saws. I also made my own dust deputy.I purchase the sly cone on Amazon and then I bought a 5 gallon pail at Walmart and put together.It works great.

                          The Pegas is made in the same factory in Taiwan where Excalibur used to be made, and now the King Industrial, Jet, Seyco, Pegas, Axminster, and several other saws are made. The saws coming from Taiwan are the same quality as the Excalibur saws that were coming out of Canada. So, you can look at the 30+ year history of quality from this type of saw when making a decision. But we've beefed up some parts, and our saws come with our Blade Chuck Heads. We also have the best color scheme in the biz <GRIN>. Please feel free to reach out to me if you have any other questions.

                          Best Regard,
