Blade Chuck Heads Made for Delta 690 & Delta 40-694 & DeWalt 788 Scroll Saws

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.

See Steve Good of the Scroll Saw Workshop's full review, plus detailed assembly instructions.

This replacement parts set includes lower and upper blade clamps compatible with the Dewalt DW788-20 inch scroll saw, and the Delta 40-694-20 inch scroll saw.  Works perfectly for BOTTOM and TOP feeding scrollers.

1) These new heads are slightly lighter than the original Dewalt/Delta Chuck 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.

5) The assembly of these new Heads is very simple and takes only a few minutes.

Exactly what I needed! 2020-07-31
By Shelli Nixon
I can’t rave enough about the Pegus clamp replacement for my dewalt scroll saw! I struggled with slippage and was so frustrated and I knew I wanted the Pegus replacements and I’m so happy I got them! I was skeptical of the claims of better performance and less vibration but yeah, it totally feels like I went from a worn out hard shifting neon to a smooth Cadillac! Highly highly recommend!!!

I have only hade these heads for a short time.
Found them easy to install and they cut down the vibration tremendously.
Makes cutting fine details so much easier.
I would recommend these heads to anyone that does a lot of stroll sawing professionally or as a hobby.

Pegas Scrollsaw Chuck Heads 2019-01-28
By Ken Zorn
Shipping was fast. Installing the chuck heads on DeWalt 788 was relatively easy except one of the chuck heads needed a small amount of sanding to allow the bearing sleeve to go all the way through. Appears to have decreased the vibration slightly.

At first I was not sure that this chuck head was going to be any better than the factory one from Dewalt however, since replacing it I have not had a blade slip. I am very happy I made the switch!

Received the ScrollSaw chuck heads by Pegas and they are great. Quieted my machine down a bit but much easier to insert the scroll saw blades.
Glad I read the reviews on these.
