After 8 years of use – I’m a hobbyist woodworker – I managed to strip out the threads on the carriage nut of my Jessum FX router lift.

I ordered the replacement carriage nut from the Jessum website and had it in just under a week. P.N. 02302-A-016

Replacement was straight forward. I did have to replace the jam nut since the new carriage nut has fine threads on the outside whereas the original had coarse threads. A replacement jam nut was purchased from my local hardware store.

Attached photo shows the parts involved. The roll pin was driven out with a drift punch after applying a little PB Blaster. The carriage rod is unscrewed from the coupler to allow the jam nut to be replaced. I double nutted the end of the carriage rod to unscrew the carriage rod without damaging the threads.

Thought I would post this in case someone needs to do this little repair.
