Kreg miter gauge question

When I moved to another town not long ago, I lost a few parts to my Kreg miter gauge and am now trying to replace them. I'm missing the nylon hex socket screws shown on the gauge head (and not sure what they're good for, since the black knobs hold the head to the fence just fine), but what really has me stumped is the "positioning stop", which is supposed to be "set tight against the right edge of the miter gauge head" to allow you to "instantly return the fence to its zero point." The thing is, I don't see how to set the positioning stop because there's no hole to insert it into.

Your ideas will be highly welcome. Kim

Hi Kim - I'm not sure I understand. The artwork you linked to shows a series of holes it looks like the pin can go in. I haven't got that gauge so I'm not much help I guess. I would suggest you call Kreg, they have a good reputation for customer service. Here's a link with an e-mail form and a phone number.

Good Luck

Hi John - yes, I know the Kreg folks are great. Some rubber bumpers were also missing and they gladly sent them to me here in Mexico. But I was hoping there's someone out there in woodworking land who owns this miter gauge and will know what I'm referring to.
