I was about to suggest Marchantdice ... but an internet search suggests that they might have disappeared.

Jimmy's link looks useful.

.

They have trapezoidal ... but a search for ACME brings only one result; and I'm pretty sure that's wrong.

[the spec-sheet appears to show it having a metric screw]

Abbsac still list this as a "legacy product" **LINK**

Might be worth a call ?

Hence the usefulness of jimmy's link

The USA might be the only place to buy ACME from stock.

Oh!

At least you can get it!

I once ordered some BSW threaded rod, I didn't ask the price, as I'd had loads of metric stuff costing very little. I think it cost £20....lesson learned

I needed some 1/4" Acme threaded rod and could only get it from USA. Even with the postage it wasn't too expensive.

Has anyone tried using McMaster Carr in the states . I did a dummy run on an order to find out shipping costs. When I placed the order it said shipping cost and taxes would be added ,maybe I'm missing something but it didn't show the final combined price ,needless to say I immediately stopped the order . Shame because the price was what I was willing to pay sad.
