Thread: Bench vise

  1. #1

    Bench vise

    I have an American vise 5" that has a broken 3/4" spindle nut. It is not repairable again.
    I am looking for a steel 10 thread square nut that is 2 inches long

    I saw this thread several months ago and I'm sure that there were replies. In fact, I am pretty sure that I replied with a suggestion. Perhaps I am mistaken, but I'm pretty sure that I had a suggestion involving nuts from McMaster-Carr fastened/welded together.

    Thanks Bruce! I was pretty sure I had seen this post before - or one like it.

    Or he could buy a tap and make one. Or single point it on the lathe.

    Have fun finding a tap that size and if you can do internal threads on a lathe go for it. That nut looks to be cast iron and Acme thread. However you might look for a steel off the shelf nut that size and make it work? Metal lathes used those on power feed.

    Bill,
    As I have suggested above, McMaster Carr has these nuts in stock.
    I doubt that the OP will be back to read either or our suggestions.
