Pegas Blade Chuck Heads Made for Jet 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.
This blade clamp replacement has only the lower blade clamp for an easy, fast and precise blade mounting. It allows the keep the original JET upper blade clamp. For a complete change (upgrade) of lower and upper blade clamps on the JET JWSS-22 and the JWSS-18 use the Pegas Blade Chuck Head Set SS-PEGAS-CHUCK.
You can read more from Steve Good on the Scroll Saw Workshop blog. Steve was kind enough to give installation instructions as well. He commented on the bottom clamp in two posts. June 20, 2018 Blog Post on the new DeWalt/Delta and JET clamps. There is also a review from March. Read the Blade Clamp review by clicking here.
Works perfectly for BOTTOM feeding scrollers.
1) These new heads, are slightly lighter than the original JET Heads.
2) Vibration will be reduced and the lighter weight means better protection of the mechanical parts of the scroll saw.
3) Changing Blades is going to be much easier and faster
