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

Set of Upper and Lower Blade Clamps - These new “Blade Chuck Heads” (also known as Scroll Saw 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.

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.

Significant improvement 2022-03-15
By Don
Appreciate the prompt processing & delivery of my order.
Scroll saw chucks are a significant improvement over the OEM, both in terms of vibration and ability to securely hold blades.
Wheels & axles are good, although took me a while to find the appropriate drill bit to match the axles - settled on 7/32" and sometimes 13/64" although neither is quite right - didn't seem metric worked well either.
Haven't used the turnbuttons or screw eyes yet but I'm sure they will be just fine - good prices I might add.

Impressive! 2024-01-09
By Penny Ramsay
I purchased the Pegas Chuck head for my Dewalt scroll saw and I am very impressed with several aspects of it. First off, the ease of replacing my original chuck head with the new one was incredibly straightforward and simple. There was a very noticeable difference in the tension in my blades which makes for a better cut. Finally the vibration I was experiencing is almost gone.All in all I am very happy with this item and highly recommend it to others.

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!!!

Very happy with Bear Woods 2023-01-18
By Joe Verhulst
My only gripe was the shipping, promised 2 days, albeit, it was ordered just before a holiday and Canada post shut down for aprlonger break so it took better than 2 weeksto arrive.....Canada post is natoriously slow at best....so Bearwoods may want to rethink using the PO.
Overall Bear Woods are excellent people to deal with.

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.

Excellent 2023-10-23
By Ron Estabrook
The stock heads on my Dewalt saw were wearing out. I have been a customer for quite some time now and have read good reviews on the Pegas products so I thought I would give the replacement heads a try. They are a fantastic upgrade to the saw and I highly recommend them.

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.

I installed these chuck heads on my DeWalt scroll saw and was immediately impressed by the reduced noise and vibration. These blade clamps have not slipped once since I installed them. Installation was straight forward and simple.

By Michael T Peterson
The new chuck heads are perfect. Went on like a dream and was a fantastic upgrade to the stock ones. The deadman switch works fantastic I love the fact that I can walk away and not have to worry about it.

Nice improvement 2024-01-11
By Pierre Garceau
The threads for the knobs on the original top head on my Dewalt stripped out so after reading so many good reviews on the Pegas heads, I decided to try them. Fast delivery and so far, they're very good.

Awesome! 2020-08-03
By Angela
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!

Happy as expected 2022-12-11
By Patrick Shea
Pegas blade clamps completely changed my Dewalt Saw's performance. I have used Pegas blades for several years and will continue. My only disappointment was that supply chain issues continue.

Received the Pegas chucks quickly. I was a bit apprehensive about the install at first but once I got into it all was good. I think my sawing accuracy has improved which is what the goal was.

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.
