Where are you guys finding vise screws for $5?

Thats what I was wondering? The closest thing I’ve been able to find was 1” threaded rod. And the threads were REALLY fine. It would take forever to actuate the chop if I had to spin the handle 50 times to move it an inch. Of course, I’m only talking about the actual screw. I’d still need to find the garters and other parts.

I’ve seen people make them out of threaded rod and plumbing supplies, probably for under $15, but they look kinda cheap/cheezy.
