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

Hey folks just wanted to follow up on this one. As stated in my first post I was mistakenly sent the metric version of the miter gauge and as of today nearly a month later it has still not been corrected. I am using the gauge and my review still stands but thought all should know the customer services has hit a bit of a road bump at least for me.

I saw another post yesterday with people having issue with Felder CS as well.  I just wonder how much of it is Covid related?

I think that has a lot to do with it.  If they are in a area where things are limited as to what percent of your work force can be there at any given time, things are bound to go slow.

Patience is definitely a virtue these days.

Just to close the loop on this I received an email from Harvey late last evening and they apologized profusely. They said they had been "swamped from the holiday and playing catch up" the replacement parts are in the mail and they provided tracking info. So all is good.

Nice! Now to find you some 1/4x20 square nuts and grind them down to fit the slots for your sacrificial zci fence. 

I went with M6 hex nuts and metric button screws worked well and no grinding, cost me almost $6 though 😏

Having said that I agree they should include the square nuts referenced in the owners manual.

Since I had to set up stops on the DP I batched out 5 so I should be good for a long time LOL

Thanks for posting..  I'll try and do a follow up video after I get home as there seems to be enough difficulty with this.

I ordered some parts on Amazon this morning..  So, we'll see how they work out soon!

 I like the idea of making a bunch of them!

Even though I already ground some down, I think I will go pick some of these up.  The ground nuts are working it just feels like a cheesy setup.

I am curious Kev, what did you decide to order.

I have to add,  I have been using this quit a bit lately and I am really happy with this purchase.  Thanks Paul.😃

I'm afraid I spent more than 6 bucks..lol. I ordered several different things to see if I could land on one thing that I think works best.

so easy to dial it in exactly where you want it.

That right there makes it worth the change.
