If you’ve ever gazed longingly at Benchcrafted's Moxon vise hardware kit for $149.00, get a load of this, Grizzly sells really nice cast iron hand wheels for as little as $10.95.
You can get some threaded rod at the hardware store for very little, add a couple of nuts and bolts, and you’re there for a lot less money. If you want to get the Acme threaded rod, you can get a 3 foot length of 3/4” here for $16.95
ADDENDUM: Well there seems to be a serious “gotcha” with this idea. If you use allthread from the hardware store, no problem, but if you want to actually tap the handles to match Acme thread, the cheapest tap you will find is $96.00
ADDENDUM 2: There is hope after all, several enterprising souls have described in detail how to make your own Acme Tap!
