I removed the stop caller and replaced it with the tension nut then a precision spacer then the bearing. Locking the tension nut placing pressure on the tension nut.
Superior solution to locking nut in "compression" lead screw builds and a must have in tension builds. Will be converting all four of my lead screws to tension with these nuts and thrust bearings.
It worked so well I replaced all my shaft collar set screws on my cnc.
The fit on the OB lead screw is flawless. They have good smooth contact to the lead screw. And I like the bigger grub screw. I am using these for locking nuts to hold thrust bearing and lead screw in place.
