        Two things to help better identify it. As Scott said what state and part of the state. Also a sharper photo of the bark and the end grain.

        My Guess right now is it looks like oak to me.

          I know that black locust is very heavy and dense, but so is oak. Oak when cut has a sour smell to it. Don't know anything about gum wood.

              The lack of service facilities is an industry wide problem not just in the SS world. To find tech savvy factory support is rare.
              I am fortunate that I can fix most anything myself. I don't have a Pegas saw or I would dig into one. The big problem is most tools like Pegas are sold by distributors...

              As a Pegas dealer, I think I will chime in on this thread. It was a huge mistake to let Bob Duncan go, but I don’t know the circumstances. I Had a customer with a tension lever problem.

              The receptacle on the Festool dust collector can be a little particular about the things plugged into it. If the prongs do not fit tightly it sometimes does not work - bend them out very slightly and you may be good to go. I have one tool that has that problem.
