I didnt even think of maybe stripping a scissor jack. That can be a cheap option. The only other lead screws i could find were very expensive, so i changed my design currently to have 2 bearings and an M12 threaded rod greased up. Might go for stripping a jack....

Ek en 2 jag vriende laat bou vir ons sommer elkeen n press op dieselfde planne. Ek is nie in beheer van die manufacturing nie, net die design wat nou klaar is. Die press fingers is vandag gesny. Staal word more gesny.
