Default ok I am stuck again

I am gathering parts for the milling machine in shop notes. When I go on line to look for the acme rods I get confused with all that is available. I do not know which one should be used for this machine. Help

John,
in the back of the magazine, it lists part #'s for the project
I believe McMaster-Carr was used as reference.
the 1" has 5-tpi and the 5/8" has 8-tpi.

Pop on over to a Walmart or something & pick up a cheap pair reading glasses till the one on order arrives.
