Ok, so I had a Harbor freight vise that I used on my bench, and I was not very nice to it
. Anyway, the threads on the sleeve to clamp the vise stripped out a while back, and the vise had pretty much been designated boat-anchor for a while, being kicked around the floor of my garage.
Today I decided to take it apart and see what kind of damage is done, and see if I can fix it. The threaded rod looks fine, but its not a normal thread type and I thought someone on here could help me figure out what it is so I could find a nut or something to make a working vise again.
here is the rod
The rod is about .57" or 37/64th in outer diameter, and the threads are square, approximately .07" wide (making about 7 threads per inch or so).
Any help would be appriciated, I figured this is the kind of thing McMaster-Carr has, but I don't know what I am looking for. I have heard of Acme threaded rods, is that what this is? The size is odd too.
