Hi all

I am intending to do a split-nut mod to reduce backlash on my Sieg X2 using the original acme leadscrews. I was wondering where is a good place to buy replacement nuts if it does not turn out as expected? The mill was bought second hand on eBay some years ago. Thanks for any pointers.

I stripped my X3 down, and i think i still have the screws and nuts still.
Im not sure if they are the same, but if they are you can have the bits.

Wow, thanks for the very generous offer, Gary! Wish I could make use of it but sadly it seems the X3 uses a different shaped nut :cry:

Will check with Arc euro, but otherwise I will just have to be extra careful with the hacksawing. :naughty:
