  • Blades and Square Blocks

    I don't have much doubt that I asked these questions to Denny in an email back when I got my Pegas saw from him. But none of my saved emails were transferred over from the old computer to this new one.

    Since what I use mostly is 3/4-inch pine and 1/4 inch multiply which pegas blade would be the best to use?

    I was going to try and cut a compound ornament from a 2-inch spuare block Sunday and the top blade clamp kept hitting the top of the block. So, what is the maximum thickness I can cut with the Pegas?

    There was one blade in the variety pack that came with saw that did a fairly good job cutting a compound ornament on a smaller block of wood. All I can remember at the moment is that it was a No. 5 something or other,

    The first thing you need to Check is that the upper arm is parallel to the table! Check your manual on how to set up your saw. From the specifications the max cut depth is 2.05 inches so you are at the saw limit. I like the Pegas MGT series. The MGt 5 (11.5 TPI) or the 7 (10.4 TPI)

      Hi Dan. I agree with Rolf. As for depth of throat, I use maximum 1 7/8". You also might consider #7R MGT for the thick woods.

        I did check to see if the upper arm was parallel yesterday. I'm not sure if I did it correctly but I do know that the top arm no longer bangs on the 2 inch block of wood. To me the instructions in the manual were just a little to vague.

          Excalibur & Related Scroll Saws I have found that people are often asking the same questions regarding the General International Excalibur scroll saw (now sold as King Canada Excelsior) and thought it would be best to try and get all the info in one place for everyone’s convenience. For now, I will mainly cover the … Tuning Your Excelsior Or Excalibur Scroll Saw Read More »

                There must be a problem with her site as I can't log in to her main page either.

                        will8989, We made a drying kiln out of a plan we saw on youtube. We took a 6-Tier Commercial Grade Heavy Duty Steel Wire Shelving Unit that we got at lowes, wrapped it in 1 inch foam insulation board and put two heat bulbs in the bottom, we have holes at the top and bottom to let the moisture out. We...
