I don’t have any pics of the process, but the aftermath. In this picture you can see my attempt on the screw. A couple of things I learned. My incorrect thought process would be that the dowels used to hold the guild block/nut together would be enough when creating the screw. Well, I was wrong and that ended up getting pushed out and caused the grove in dowel. The whole upper part of the dowel was my first attempt that I took off on the lathe – the second part you can somewhat see in the second attempt where the screw wouldn’t advance in all the way. At this point I couldn’t understand the reason for why it didn’t work. Investigating it, I found the guide nut got “crossed threaded”, ruining it. I also found that what I thought was 90 degrees for the holes, wasn’t quite so. So at this point I quit working on it for nearly a month due to family things and frustration. Coming up will be the third version.
