So after lurking on this site for way to long I thought I better try some participation and post a pic of my work in progress.
I was fortunate enough to acquire a full and unmolested Dore-Westbury MK2 milling machine kit with large table, long column and table power feed a few weeks a go and have finally made a start on the bottom end.

I don’t suppose anyone noticed my seized screw from yesterday was a left-hand thread, eh? I sure didn’t. At least I didn’t cotton on until I kept taking more and more passes but it still wouldn’t start in the part — then the penny dropped. Guess that’s why I couldn’t get it out in the first place…

Anyway, all was not lost and I ran another blank and put the threads on the correct way this time, here’s the finished screw. I used 4140, diameter is somewhere around a #7 (0.0140”) and the thread is 40 tpi.

yea, I've done the opposite. neighbor brought over a screw from chain saw, I put a gauge on it and got the pitch and size.
cut the threads... no go... I needed to cut left hand threads..
