Harbor Freight english wheel

Does anyone know what the diameter and thread the screw(thread rod) used to raise and lower the bottom die yoke is?
I just acquired a used wheel and it's missing the rod.
Thanks, Fast Jimmy

Most English Wheels use a 1-5 acme thread for the adjuster wheel-

Yes, the HF E-Wheel has a 1" adjuster rod (I just measured mine to make sure.) I don't know the thread pitch or if it is Acme, so I took a quick photo in the hopes it might help.

Acme thread

Thanks,

I used a piece of clay to get an impression of the threads and it appears to be 1 x 9 or 1 x 10. I'll see if that size is available.

To find out for sure, but a bolt of each of those threads...try them in the housing.....better than paying for a larger piece of threaded material.

Why not just return to HF and buy a digital "verynear" caliper and measure the thread pitch. It's the distance from one peak to the next. Or set the "verynear" to 1" and count the teeth between. 5 full teeth and it's 1"-5 tpi. You can also now verify the thread diameter with the "verynear."

BTW these are called a "verynear" because that about as close as you can measure with them. haha
