|Some members have recently asked me if I had any replacement shoulder screws for the standard 12"-16" Emerson oscillating wheel. I had made some in the past out of steel in one-piece construction. This involved "single point threading" and a considerable amount of secondary machine operations.
In order to simply the work and to produce a screw at a more affordable cost, I can offer making this screw using a stainless steel screw I can buy from McMaster Carr and machine the head, and then make a press-over sleeve out of tool steel. I am pretty pleased with the outcome and the finished screw seems to match the original and has no damaging effect to the threads.
I made up a trial run and will be offering these at $10.00 ea. plus $3.00 shipping. If anyone needs more than one the price will be $8.00 each plus the same $3.00 shipping.
Best Regards, Jerry
