    Dear Mr. Factotum, how our problems and thoughts resemble: Just some days ago I finished a table how to cut (approximate) imperial threads with a metric (pitch 1mm) spindle and a cheap set of POM gears. In most amateur cases the nut thickness is less than 10-threads. A difference / error of 5/100 mm (2 thousandths) within 10 threads is not noticeable.
