Pegas Scroll Saw - 21 Inch with Raising Arm and the Pegas Blade Clamps

21″ Throat Depth, Upper Arm Raises, Proven Motor and Linkage.  PLUS the game-changing Pegas Chuck Head that has helped so many saws improve.

Pegas®​ Scroll Saws are high-precision tools, which with a minimum amount of maintenance, will provide reliable service and great satisfaction for many years. This scroll saw is developed in Switzerland - made in Taiwan to the rigorous specifications and quality requirements of Pegas.  

This product will ship within three business days, please note we are not open on holidays or weekends.



The Pegas Scroll Saw - Why is it better?

While it’s made in the same factory in Taiwan where the Excalibur scroll saw used to be made, Pegas has added Swiss precision and engineering to their scroll saw. Let’s start with a beefed up chassis featuring a reinforced web in the connecting rod and vertical rocker and needle bearings pressed into the rocker arm as opposed to a sleeve and bolt connection that is prone to wear and failure. Next, the saw comes with the revolutionary Pegas Blade Chuck Heads installed (a $90 value). These precision-machined blade clamps, manufactured from aircraft-grade aluminum, can be adjusted easily to grip blades better than any other clamp on the market, and weigh less to reduce wear on your machine. Finally, the table boasts a thick, scratch-resistant coating that prevents corrosion and make the wood slide easier. The saw still boasts the precision rack-and-pinion system that tilts the saw head to make angled cuts (instead of tilting the table). It tilts a full 45-degrees to the right, and 35-degrees to the left (because of the dust collection port). It also positions all of the primary controls (speed, power, and blade tension) at the front of the top saw arm. A stand and foot switch are available.

Pegas®​ Scroll Saws Offer Many Valuable Benefits

A. The head can be tilted by 45° to left or right. The blade tilts rather than the table to achieve:
  • better control of the workpiece
  • higher precision
  • maximum comfort & convenience
B. The upper arm lifts to allow easy and rapid blade changes: a real advantage for work involving various interior cuts - this makes threading blades a whole lot easier!

C. Very Quick Blade Changing Thanks To the PEGAS BLADE CLAMPSThe manual blade-clamping system does not require the use of a tool. Meanwhile the tensioning system allows the same tension to be applied to the blade whenever it is changed.

D. Easy access to the start/stop switch and the speed regulator, positioned on the front of the upper arm.

E. The onboard dust blower paired with the dust collector provide direct and efficient dust extraction.  To attach your vacuum to the dust collection port, you can slide a hose inside the port, or use expansion or reducing sleeves to connect your dust collection system.
 
Excerpt from the review by Bob Duncan of Scroll Saw Woodworking and Crafts Magazine:
Scroll Saw from Pegas 21 inch"The first branded Pégas Scroll Saw to hit the market does so with a bang, combining Swiss engineering with a proven design to set a new standard for higher-priced saws.

These new units, made in the same factory as Excalibur saws (as well as Jet, King, Seyco, and a few brands sold in other countries), match the quality of those popular saws but include a key upgrade: they come with the revolutionary Pégas Blade Chuck Heads pre-installed.

The new Pégas features a tilting arm controlled by a rack and pinion system.

Like Excalibur saws, the Pégas features a tilting arm controlled by a rack and pinion system that allows you to dial in an angle quickly and accurately. It also has a spring-loaded locating pin and matching holes for common angles, such as 0°, 45°, and 221/2°, to make it even easier to orient the arm. (Follow the instructions in the owner’s manual to check these angles when you get your saw; after I squared my blade to the table, I had to adjust the angle guide and locating pin to zero it in.) And conveniently, Pégas put the power switch and speed control at the front of the saw arm.

Most importantly, however, Pégas pre-installed their Blade Chuck Heads on the saw. This upgrade, a $90 value, reduces vibration noticeably and holds blades super-securely—incredibly, we put them on our shop saws nearly a year ago and have not had a single blade slip out of place since. (See our review of them at scrollsawer.com/2019/09/07/product-review-pegas-blade-chuck-heads/.)

Great Product 10/02/2020
By Tori Watkins
So this being my very first scrollsaw I really have nothing to compare it with. So I will review everything I like about it so far. First the shipping was fantastic, everything arrived w/no issues. it was packaged very well. No issues setting everything up and getting started right out the box. I really like how quiet the saw is during operation. The dust collection works really well also. The saw comes with a small sample pack of MGT, and Super Skip Blades in various sizes. They work great for starting but I highly recommend ordering the sample pack after you get comfortable with the saw. I ordered the footswitch which is very useful. I also ordered the stand but I don't plan on using it until later when I get more space in my garage so for now the scrollsaw is on top of my work bench which is perfect height for me. Hope this helps anyone starting out and thinking about this saw. Shoutout to my Air Force Brother Jed @ RCWOODFAB on Instagram he inspired me to start scrolling

Outstanding Scroll Saw 07/12/2019
By Nevada Woodchuck
My saw finally arrived! It was extremely well packed and completely assembled. After getting it mounted on its stand I aligned the blade, plugged it in, and spent about four hours on it. The Pegas blade clamp/tension lever is outstanding, and being able to raise the arm high enough to insert fretwork is awesome. The saw is very quiet with very little vibration, and cutting straight lines has never been easier. Everything is mounted on a wheeled base, and the vibration is so minor that I didn't have to lock the wheels. The extra parts provided might one day come in handy, but this saw is so well made that I expect many hours of usage before needing to use them. The dust collector would be great if I had a vacuum that was quiet enough to run when sawing, it will probably come off. This saw is a real pleasure to use, and I expect that I'll be spending many hours making sawdust. I'm totally happy with this saw, and if your looking for a scroll saw, you need look no further.

Great Saw with a couple negativess 02/08/2020
By Dan Urban
The Pegas Scroll Saw is the best saw I ever used, by a good margin. My old saw was an Excalibur 30"; a fine saw, but nothing like the Pegas. It is smooth and quiet, doing everything I ask of it. The soft start is really nice.
Now the negatives:
1. The dust extraction system consists of a coupling for a 2 1/2" vacuum connected to a piece of light plastic which surrounded the holes on the table. The blade rubbed against the plastic, making such a loud noise that I immediately removed it, so I don't know if it actually collected dust or not.
2. A collection of blades (nice touch) and some advertising were tightly glued to the table. It took me at least 20 minutes to remove all the adhesive. Even now I can still see marks. Why did the manufacturers use such a strong adhesive for something they knew would be removed right away??
I spent too many words describing two minor (but attention grabbing) negatives. This is a fantastic saw! I'm just delighted with it.

Great Quality 09/30/2020
By Michael Belle Isle
What can I say about this saw?
First - I would say Bear Woods is a reputable company concerned with the needs of their customers.
Second - I have never really owned, what I now refer to as, a "quality" scroll saw. The Pegas 21" has shown me that I can now produce a quality work without the struggle. My dealings with previous scroll saws was always one of those "Well I'd like to do this in scroll sawing but I know I have to deal with the saw I have." The Pegas 21" is a real joy to use to do scroll sawing work on.

My summation, if this song fits in your budget it is definitely worth the money spent.

I would like to thank Eden of Customer Service for the help with my purchase.

By John K
Bear Woods offered a high end scroll saw at a
Good price they kept me updated as to delivery date .As received the Pegas saw was very well packed and and adjusted properly with regard to aggressiveness of cut ( twenty thousands of an inch front to back movement),initial blade tension adjustment and angular cursor position a spare fuse and replacement wear parts for the tensioning lever and blade clamp were included also a sample pack of assorted blades the Pegas blade clamps are excellent with regard to the design ,machining , fit and finish ,a real bonus .The one minor inconvenience was the lower blade guard which I am not accustomed to and which I removed

Great quality 11/27/2019
By Steve Cormier
The scroll saw is an excellent saw. It runs so smooth with no vibration. It takes a little getting use to when your used to vibration from your previous saw. The 21 inch clearance allows for cutting larger projects. No worries about making contact with the frame. The foot switch is something new for me so it will take a little time to change. I also purchased the inspection lamp. The arm could be a little longer. The light is better than the older lamp that I had.
The overall experience with Bear Wood is excellent. I would recommend Bear Wood to anyone as the Pegas 21 scroll saw.

Pegas Scroll Saw 03/28/2019
By David Johnson
Overall, an excellent scroll saw. Very solid, large table and no vibration. The Pegas blade clamps add the finishing touch. Bearwoods service was excellent. Had a small issue with the packaging and taking the saw out of the box. Contacted Bearwoods who replied immediately and they then contacted Pegas. A Pegas representative called the next day and resolved the issue. Couldn't have asked for better service. Looking forward to many years of enjoyment.

Great customer service 01/10/2020
By Dan Reusche
I am giving a little lower rating because the first saw was defective out of the box. It vibrated excessively. However, Bear Woods made sure my experience was excellent by sending me a replacement that works great. I can’t fault the first saw either. Even though the box and packaging were in good shape one never knows what kind of hits the package may have taken. Anyway the new saw is performing quite nicely and I am a satisfied customer.

Love love love 10/29/2020
By Diane Gash
I am fairly new to scrolling but knew quickly that I loved doing it. Only a few months after getting my first saw I decided to sell it and upgrade to the Pegas saw. The very best decision I made! I could see the improvement of my cutting right away. Just makes it that much more fun! Customer service from Bear Woods is terrific! I definitely recommend them and the Pegas saw!

Pegas 21" Scroll Saw and stand 07/13/2019
By Ronald Keen
The specs for the scroll saw are a little misleading. You really can't tilt the head more than about 35 degrees before the blade starts rubbing the table. The stand took some work, as the diagram that came with it is wrong; don't use it as the basis for assembly. I replaced the feet on the stand with some casters that can roll or be raised onto pads, and that works well.

1,000% satisfied 10/23/2020
By Charles Jackson
I started with a cheap WEN and pulling the trigger on this was night & day. Cuts that would take me 2 minutes to set up before now take me 10-20 seconds max. My only con for this unit is when I'm doing small cuts and my hand is close to the blade, the clamp bolt strikes my knuckles. If that ends up being the only complaint I have, I'll be a very happy scroller!

By donald zanetti
I purchased this after watching Steve Goods video review. I wanted a more precision saw to replace the one I had. I am extremely happy with the purchase. I had a question which I emailed Bear Woods and received answers right away. The saw has no vibration and the blade moves almost vertical which allows extremely small close cuts.

So far so great! 03/28/2019
By Jeff
Excellent saw, especially for the price! Dust collection plastic piece underneath table came off on it's own after 6 hours of use, but I didn't care for it anyway. Runs quietly and smoothly. Much better than my Dewalt.
