    If I were to go for this lead screw upgrade, where do I get the brass couplers? My lathe and workbench?

    Oh I did not mean the flexible ones, but the solid "side clamp" style instead of the set screws bearing on the lead screws.

    Are those OK?

    Clamp ones are fine as long as they are not the flexible ones as @mark tomlinson mentioned.
