You might shoot this guy an e-mail expining the problems you are having. Asking for help & advice!

You might get away with using a metal threaded rod and metal nut and just making a handle. From what I gather the mother of all use to adjust tension not exactly sure. Not all spinning wheels have a mother of all just not sure how they work or maybe called something else.

Looked several video’s including one you posted and sure looks like a lot of hard work. Can tell you from experience don’t want to use soft woods because threads do crumble. Tried hand chasing threads & CA glue method and not very impressed.

I would take my parts to a maching shop and ask them to measure the threads.
