pic one the scrap part with brass guts.
pic 2 the brass shaft to be used.
pic 3 turned down and getting ready to thread the 5-40 end
pic 4 threaded, made a little long for trimming
pic 5 using 1/8" collet to cut the excess and trim for the head
pic 6 using shims under my tool block to cut the slot using the cross slide. Tool is on center and shims added or removed for the width.
pic 7 Done just need his gun to try them out on. Bob
Nice screw, and remember, we're not cheapskates. We make efficient use of precious resources. You're lucky to have a dumpster worth the dive. Wish I still did.
