The vise that Rockler sells for a quick release front vise tagged item no. 27838 is painted black. I bought one today that was never installed but the guy had misplaced the two nuts on the front. Anyone know the size and thread pitch of these two? I doubt you had to buy these since they came with the vise, but I thought I’d ask??
They look to be 1/2” threads and fairly coarse, but a std. 1/2×13 nut does not work. It begins to bind when only halfway threaded on. I am hoping that the threads are at least a std metric thread and not something only available through the vise mfgr. I called Rockler and they were not helpful; simply “did not know”. Thanks in advance.

likely 12-1.75 or 12- 1.50 metric. I have a similar one and can check tomorrow.

Sorry I got busy and forgot today. Mine is much larger about 20 mm. Sorry I could not have been more help.

Id take a measurement of the of the threads and the tpi or mm with a caliper and compare it online.
