Feedscrew Problem

Whilst fitting the DRO to my Kerry lathe I investigated the source of
the backlash in the cross slide. I guessed that I'd have to measure up
for a replacement feed nut but no, that's been done. It's the
feedscrew that's worn. The nut replaced by a previous owner fits
perfectly at the extremities of it's travel. So I need to make a new
feedscrew - which isn't easy if you only have one lathe and no spare
Has one got spare feedscrew for a Kerry that I could borrow (or buy)
to work from? I suspect that Kerry didn't change the design through
the lathe life so any model should be OK.

Take screw and nut out. Lock jib strips. Spin top slide round and use as cross slide. Make new screw using original nut as pattern Refit.
