Lathe: Gear Cover Hand Screws

I decided to replace the gear cover screws with thumbscrews to make its removal easier.

I bought a section of M5 threaded rod and two 25mm M5 threaded standoffs from McMaster. 9mm of one end of the standoffs were turned down to 8.5mm diameter, and then were red Loctited onto a 60mm long section of threaded rod.
