Metal Pegs - Regular

Extra metal pegs for our WigJig Jewelry Making Tools
WigJig jewelry making jigs are available using two sizes of metal pegs.  The WigJig Delphi, Cyclops, Centaur and Centaur-Lite use the smaller 1/16" pegs.  The WigJig Olympus, Olympus Lite and Electra use the larger 3/32" pegs.  These pegs are made from stainless steel, which minimizes rust, but does not totally eliminate it. 

Each WigJig is sold with a set of regular metal pegs.  While we believe that the set of pegs that comes with the jigs will be adequate for most wire projects, there are always some projects that require more pegs.  Also, there are occassions where the pegs can get lost and need to be replaced.  With all of that said, here are our options for purchasing more regular metal pegs.
 


Extra Metal Pegs for the Olympus - Olympus Lite - Electra

Extra metal pegs for our WigJig Jewelry Making ToolsThe WigJig Olympus comes with forty regular metal pegs in two different lengths -- 5/8 inch long and 3/4 inch long.  The WigJig Electra comes with twenty metal pegs in the 5/8 inch length.  The WigJig Olympus Lite comes with ten metal pegs in a length of 1/2 inch.   For all three of these jigs, the pegs are 3/32 inch in diameter.  Based upon the difference in lengths, one should understand that while the pegs for the Olympus and Electra are interchangeable, the pegs for the Olympus and Olympus Lite are not interchangeable.  The reason is that the Olympus Lite is not as thick as the Olympus and for that reason, it uses shorter pegs.  The shorter pegs for the Olympus Lite, will be too short for the Olympus and conversely the shortest pegs that come with the Olympus will be too long for the Olympus Lite.  You can view options for additional metal pegs in the table below.

Longer Metal Pegs for the Olympus - Olympus Lite - Electra:

Longer Metal Pegs for the WigJig Jewelry Making ToolsMost people will not need the longer metal pegs.  Most wire components used in making jewelry do not need the longer pegs.  With that said, not all jewelry projects can be made with just the regular metal pegs.  Some projects will require longer metal pegs.  The picture at right shows one such project.  As you can see in the picture, the size of the bead would not allow you to use regular metal pegs to make this component.  For those who need longer metal pegs, you can view our selection of these pegs in the table below:

Summary on Metal Pegs for the WigJig Jewelry Making Jigs

All WigJig jewelry making jigs come with regular metal pegs in one of two sizes.  The WigJig Delphi, Cyclops, Centaur or Centaur Lite come with pegs that are 1/16 inch in diameter and 1/2 inch long.  The WigJig Olympus, Olympus Lite and Elextra come with metal pegs that are 3/32 inch in diameter.  The pegs for the Olympus and Electra are 5/8 inch long.  The Olympus also comes with pegs that are 3/4 inch long.  The pegs for the Olympus Lite are 1/2 inch long and are not interchangeable with the pegs for the Olympus or Electra.  We sell extra metal pegs for all of our jigs.  All of these metal pegs are made of stainless steel.  We also sell longer metal pegs, which aren't normally required.  The longer pegs come as a set of three -- 1", 1-1/4" and 1-1/2" or in a package with a single peg 2 inches long.  Because all of these pegs for our WigJig tools are made of stainless steel, the pegs are virtually indestructable.  You can lose them, but you probably could not break them, even if you tried.
