I will take the milling machine to the nut I already ground off so that I can create a nice finished surface to hardness test through the nut. I suspect it's case hard but will report back.
I've been thinking along those lines - the originals are most likely induction hardened, I agree. I've also been considering making some of 4140 and flame hardening the back side with oxy-fuel torch and a rosebud tip. I don't know how else to make these with simple machine shop tools.
If I can get something good, I will make twenty or thirty. I should be able to waterjet or mill blanks out of bar stock and thread four or five at a time on the lathe. Not easy but not impossible.
