what did you make the vice out of, did you make your own thread or get it from something else?

Been thinking about trying to make my own one out of a bit of rail road, just stuck on how to make a good thread for the vice.

Here's a size reference picture. 12.125" tall. Made of 1/2" hot rolled bar and plate. Thread is 1/2"-13 and came on the wing bolt. Tried garage door opener thread stock... (5/8 ths?) too big. Perfect thread is in one of my favorite "C" clamps so I am looking for another C clamp so I can build another vise. Not really for pounding on but sanding and filing. Spring was made of 1/2" stock from a coil spring.
