What is the ball screw dia size used in the IH mill kit? There is a drastic jump in price between the two sizes.
I did some searching on the site and found some folks using 5/8 on similar square column conversions but want to know what the guys at IH spec'd for their machines before I buy my screws/nuts.

Thanks,
Devin

3/4 rockford ball screws. ideally you want ground ball screws not rolled. do not use the cheap mcmaster carr ones if you want a zero backlash screw. good ball screws and nuts are where the precision comes from in their kit.
