Excerpt from the review by Bob Duncan of Scroll Saw Woodworking and Crafts Magazine:"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.
