Sorry about that. Yeah, the 3/4" was the wrench that fits over the nut.

If the 1/2"-13 only went on a couple of turns and jammed try a M12-2.0 nut.   I am betting metric.   Roly

I hope the 1/2-13 nut will work for you.

Thought I would share my HF issue:
I have the HF 6" buffer (yard sale find, works great) and lost both nuts. (must...resist....puns...).

Turns out the right arbor nut is a 1/2-12 nut which is almost impossible to find. But thanks to a great customer service person at grizzly, even though they were discontinued,  found one. -and only one...

The other side is a
1/2-12 reverse thread which is totally impossible to find....anywhere. so even though it is a HF product, it is
not a metric thread.

was told that the 12-pitch thread is an old British standard...still found in some of the machinery 
made in factories influenced by pre-ww2 British engineering/ ....ie-Taiwan.(go figure) HF does NOT have replacements for mine.

Some old British cars used this thread pitch.

The standard 1/2-13 nuts will start but jams up just like a metric would. 
(sorry, this probably has no bearing on your issue but needed to vent)

I think you might have the answer to what it is .  I would not have guessed that.  If neither a 1/2-13 or a M12 2.0 will fit it must be that.    Roly

I needed a nut for the mill and it was an odd ball size, couldn't even find a tap for it. Come to find out it's the same nut that fits an older Ford pickup front end tie rod or arm (don't remember). Had to buy both R and L threaded nuts but they were only 3 bucks.
I spent a long time searching the web. I knew somewhere on Earth it was in a box on a shelf somewhere.

Hmmm.


The tech said it's 1/2-13, but I have a 1/2-13 nut that jams. I'll try to find that metric nut and see it if it works.

If I can't find it...looks like a Rikon slow speed grinder is in the works.
Semper fi,
Brad
