Re: Gear puller threads Need new center force screw.

My Proto puller set uses Acme threads.   Unfortunately I only managed to get part of the set and so it does not get used that often.

I've never seen a puller with anything but fine 60° thread. It is extremely difficult to do fine ACME. I have 3 different ones all with the same 60° thread. Maybe others exist, I've just never seen one.

ACME or square thread would be much stronger than pointed or buttress.
