Upgrade your Scroll Saw with Pegas Blade Chuck Heads - 40% lighter, Less Vibration.

Set of Upper and Lower Scroll Saw Blade Clamp Replacements.  These new “Blade Chuck Heads” (also known as Blade Clamps) were developed in Switzerland by Pégas in association with the HEIG engineering school in Yverdon. The studies and the tests demonstrated that the weight of these heads is in direct relation with the service life and the vibrations of the machine.

1) These new heads, manufactured with aeronautical aluminum for resilience and optimal weight, are 40 % lighter than you original Heads. 

2) Vibration will be greatly reduced

3) Changing Blades is easier and faster

4) Better protection of the mechanical parts of the scroll saw.

Note - The Set Screws and Thumb Screws are wear parts on any blade clamps, and should be replaced every few months or couple of years depending on how much you use your scroll saw - Click here to see our selection of renewal kits.

As you can see, they are clearly more compact than original heads and even easier of use. The assembly of these new Heads is very simple and takes only a few minutes.

All parts are included to make this quick and simple replacement.  Steve Good's review above also shows how to remove your existing blade clamps and install the new one.

Excellent quality and easy to install 2019-03-06
By Anna R.
I have an Excelsior 16" scroll saw and do a lot of fretwork. My original chuck head had worn out and I was told that in order to replace some or all of the parts, I'd have to order each piece separately! When I saw the Peas complete set, I ordered it for its simplicity and Pegas' reputation for quality. It really was easy to install and it's easy to use - no more fiddling to get the blade to hold and tension properly. The order was received promptly too.

Pegas Clamps 2018-10-14
By Gayle Mortenson
Purchased these recently and they arrived with a bolt missing. After emailing, the bolt was couriered to me promptly - great service! These clamps exceeded my expectation - my saw is now fun to use. They make blade changing easy and the EX21 is now rapidly becoming my favourite to use after gathering dust for a year or more. I will recommend these clamps and Bear Wood to anyone interested

What a difference your Chuck Heads make to our scroll saw experience! My wife makes wooden artwork and I make the frames. After a few months feeling a bit depressed about blades breakages, I decided to surprise her with the Pegas chuck heads, now she is powering through the stock and enjoying herself again - smiling...

Great Product to upgrade a scroll saw 2023-03-08
By Brian Brown
I have an Excalibur EX21, only few months of use. It was vibrating and dancing all over my counter, until I replaced the chuck heads with Pegas chuck heads, WOW what a difference, saw doesn't even move now even at full speed, very impressed, and satisfied, wished I would have purchased the Pegas scroll saw instead.

Pegas chuck heads 2018-10-08
By Lawrence Armstrong
Purchased a set for my Excalibur EX-21. Amazing difference from the stock blade clamps. Noticeably less vibration plus changing and clamping blades is a breeze. A very high quality product compared to the stock Excalibur versions. I highly recommend these as a must have item for any serious scroller!

By David Hemenway
With the new heads I can now wear out a blade before breakage and do not have to tighten up the blade with the back adjustment on my Excalibur scroll saw. They may seem a bit pricey but you sure do get what you pay for, Thanks

Great Product 2022-05-30
By Dan Klaas
The Pegas scroll saw heads are a great upgrade to my 30" scroll saw; the thumbscrews require minimal torque to hold the blades and tension is always the right amount. Very happy with the purchase.
