I have a Grizzly G1758 horizontal bandsaw that I bought new many years ago. From time to time I've fought with the half nut which seems to work only half the time. I replaced it once thinking that it was worn out. I've cleaned it, lubed it, cursed it, and finally am ready to replace it with a real nut if I can find out what the acme thread size is. Anybody know?
The other option which may be better is to just replace the screw and use a regular acme nut. Suggestions?

We have the same problem. The drops and you cannot tighten the vice, without lifting the nut up by hand. Never looked into it.

Yep. I've been lifting it by hand for a while and now it won't even reliably work that way. So I've got to do something.
