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.

If you know someone with a cnc machine shop they could single point thread a new nut of any pitch.

which would cost at least as much as the grinder did originally, currently $50.
We do segmented turning, not because it is easy, but because it is hard.

Do you just need the one?
If the metric does not work, I will send you a 1/2-12 nut to try.

Yup. Just need one. Right hand thread

Will a 1/2-13 start to thread before jamming on a 12-1/2 thread?

yes, that's what it does on mine. I can start a 1/2-13 but it jams. the 1/2-12 works perfect.
The metric I tried jams also.

Did you ever measure the threads like Timberwolf suggested ?   Roly

Do I read this as 1/2-12?

rednoblue,

I tried to message you, but your account has them turned off; I can't send one to you.
Semper fi,
