What was the thread on the locking screw on these surveyors tripods?

Need to start making the mount for it.

Greetings!

From my father's "accumulated treasures" I inherited a 5/8" Whitworth thread tap which works a treat in the application you are describing!

Gud on ya Cobber...........

I'll be using a nut, cut into a wood plug to fit the inner hole with a plate over it to secure it, wood panel on top with lazy susan on top of that on which to sit the dish and rig. 

No CNC here just a Junior Hacksaw and Black Country Screwdriver.

No, I don't hail from Birmingham, I am from across the white line outside the Hawthorns so in the real Black Country (sic).

I recall a certain training officer at PO Factories Division demonstrating the use of such a tool to tighten and loosen a five-eighths Whit nut on a stud.  It was the slightly specialised one-and-a-half pound ball-pein variant rather than the cross-pein I would have expected. It did have a suspiciously well-polished head with almost no chamfer. Doubtless that modification was a sneaky bit of legerdemain to ensure an effective bite.
