Response to Looks good...
showed that a Chinese die with a thread relief would give me less runout than the factory latch rod.
The issue for me and my belt driven/gear changin' bench top lathe was to first determine what change gears to install, installing the gears, then grinding the 60 degree bit, then etc. Then after I did all that I'd have to reinstall the original gears to return the lead screw to "normal" rotation to turn the "catchey end".
