Review of Harvey MG-36 Miter Gauge compared to Incra 1000HD


Recommended Posts

I still have not received mine and wouldn’t otherwise be concerned if you two hadn’t already received yours. And as I haven’t even received a confirmation of the order, it makes me wonder if I hit submit? I emailed them asking and hope to hear from them tomorrow. I’ve never failed to do that in the past.🤥

As promised here is my opinion of the Harvey MG-36 Miter gauge as compared to my Incra 1000HD miter gauge. Spoiler alert for those who want to cut to the chase, I am selling my Incra 🙂  FWIW This

Just bury the price in the cost of the lathe. 🙃

I went with the M-6 Hex and M6 X 16 machine screws, works perfectly.  After Paul posted I was looking at the manual again and it said M-6.  I just zoned in on the part in parentheses that said 1/4 X 2

Between the holidays and Sunday, it wouldn't surprise me if yours hasn't moved much..  I think @Chet and I were pretty quick on the trigger.  You hesitated and it shows.. 😉

Now ours are in our shops collecting dust as we read your note getting just as much use as yours 😉

The same as you, Wednesday, 12-23. 

I’m sure it is operator error, my part. 

I actually ordered mine a little earlier..  

I saw his post in BW's thread and ordered it then.  I was really itching to check out some Harvey stuff.

I ordered at 4:30 PM on the 23rd, received notice of my order at 4:33 PM.  Then I received a notice at 8:57 AM the next morning that it had shipped.  I received a notice at 6:00 on the 26th that it was out for delivery.  At 7:00 it was on my porch when I went out to get the paper and at 9:00 AM I received a notice of its delivery but I knew that by then.

Coop, did you go online and check you banking accounts to see if you had been charged, they usually don't charge your card until it has been shipped.

To add to this and if I remember correctly, BCT as part of the sale provided Harvey with an easier way of entry to the US market. But the level of quality needed to be maintained or BCT could undo the acquisition. This was really important to John Ecconomaki who founded BCT. Based on this miter gauge and the looks of the offerings from Harvey that level of quality is being met.

I would completely agree!

Coop was so worried his Jedi computer skills messed up his purchase he wasn’t focused on your hard work filming the unboxing, set up and review. 

Ok, that's a firs!  Coop and Jedi computer skills in the same sentence!  You should get a bonus for that!

The packaging itself impresses me!

Definitely!

I kind of like getting a shop tool from Tiffany's except the box is brown instead of baby blue.

I set mine up today and as nice as Incra's is, this one is definitely a cut above.
