« Part 4: machining the bushing socket and lead screw holder Part 5 of Wagon Vise series Part 6: Threading the brass Nut »

here i cut the acme rod to length 3/4-6 using a bandsaw makes it easy

now chuck it up to the lathe to machine the .625 diameter, to accommodate the .625 bushing on both side.

then the main acme nut base carrier is a 2 pcs metal that will house the brass nut and the dog,

Here’s how it will look like in the bench still need the dovetail dogs
