I have a SB 13” lathe with about .080 backlash in the cross slide. I am looking at replacing the threaded portion of the screw along with the nut. Without me taking it apart does anyone know the size of the acme thread 5/8-x? I see replacement nuts on the auction site stating they are 5/8-8. The reason I am questioning that is the travel on a 8 tpi is .125 vs 10 tpi .100 making it fit the dials graduations. Maybe I don’t know what I’m talking about being a noob.... if some one could explain?
