    Sandford MG Acme Thread

    Just an update. I got the Acme Rod from Green Bay and after an hour or two I had machined the Threads off the one end and made it match the original.

    Sandford MG Acme Thread

    I called and ordered the 952 Bronce Nut and some 4140 Threaded Rod in the 3/4 - 6 LH from Green Bay Mfg so it will be headed my way soon.

    Time to replace Mitutoyo 982-537-1

    Time to replace Mitutoyo 982-537-1
