I have ordered Acme threaded rod to make the repair, but I will need to
accurately bore out the center of it whichever repair method I settle on. The
two choices now (As I see it) it to either turn off the existing worn-out
threads (I have a second lathe, a 3.5 x 17 Sherline), and bore out the
threaded rod to fit over the original shaft, OR Bore out the threaded rod to
the minor diameter of the splines and duplicate the splines (Or have it done
Either way I need to make an accurate hole almost a foot long. HELP!
Any advice appreciated. Alternate suggestions also appreciated.
