    I’ve made hundreds of almost identical part. I blank them on the lathe then mill the knob side.

    I had a house with footer drains going into a crock in the basement. Never again.
    Pumps don't last forever and any power outage means no pump.

    I've seen guys make their own. Just a knurled aluminum disc about 1" dia with a thru hole tapped from the side for a set screw.

    All taps 3.5mm/#6 and smaller have .141 shanks.

    That a pretty small arc you're interpolating. The feed rate seems pretty high to me.
