Truly a lovely bell screw. Thanks for posting.

Checked my box of bell screws and (unfortunately) do not have one, or it would be yours for free. What is the thread diam x pitch and would you accept a substitute?

Paul.

Bell screws are fairly easy to make on a lathe. However, that wide, crowned, lovely knurling would be tough to replicate.

Best luck finding an original screw. If no luck, let me know and I will do my best to help.

I should have a full set of King screws and sockets which might do the job.

If you can post a couple clear pics with a ruler I could see if they would be the right size and get them to you pretty cheap.
