When I was back working, was a CNC Mfg Specialist for 35 years, lathes were my forte, I had collet pad hex jaws purchased in 11/16"; 1-1/16", and 5/8" sizes and set up and programmed hex nuts, and hex bolts made exact-as-original sizes. I set them up to run as I would for a production operation job with a bar feeder and parts catcher so could make multiple part fast. I'd work late or come in on weekends to use a vacant Mori-Seiki SL-25 Lathe. I purchased the hex bar stock myself in 4145-M steel. I also made some OEM style washers same way only with round stock. We had a lot of scrap H-13 bar ends lying around so material cost me nothing. I still have some 351505 5/8" flat washers and 356515 steering wheel washers and all of my CNC Programs I wrote myself (NOT with a CAD program) so can always make more.
