This precision trapezoidal (metric) lead screws pitch and diameter are a perfect combination of high torque and speed. This screw fits the bill for most machine designs and will quickly become a standard on OpenBuilds.
Equipped with a large diameter that helps eliminate whipping and a high pitch which provides a quick 8mm translation for every revolution on the screw.
It's a great power transmition choice for your next build.
- Lead Screw Diameter ∅ 8 (mm)
- Pitch 2 (mm)
- Lead 8 (mm)

Lead Screw Lengths
Actual lengths have been extended to allow for different connection points.
Please Note: The leads have a very slight larger diameter then the ID of the bearings. It is a very small difference and insures that the bearing has no to little axial play once the lead is inside. You will want to take very fine sand paper (like 220 grit) and sand the ends of the Lead Screw about 2” in from each end to allow your bearing a nice fit to slip onto the ends of the lead.
