Leadscrew/Hex End Replacement

In case you should need it we have the lead screw assembly for the Toob Bender. The best thing you can do to extend the life of these components is keep them clean and use grease on the screw, but they can eventually wear out and we keep replacements ready to ship.

If you want to make your own leadscrew — it’s 1/2″ 20tpi threaded rod cut to 13.875″ in length.

For assembly, we use Red Loctite Paste. Grip the leadscrew in a vise with copper-faced soft jaws or similar. The needle thrust bearing doesn’t need pre-load like a headset or wheel hub. We leave it slightly loose.
