please note there are 2 options which aren’t clearly articulated:
– to go with a “5/16-18 Threaded Rod” (or M8 threaded rod in metric system) and a pineapple coupling (which is a printed part)
– or to go with a T8 lead screw with a T nut and a 8mm-5mm coupler which are factory made and can be purchased online here at the website store (https://vicious1-com.myshopify.com/collections/parts) or anywhere else

now about the lengths:

1. there is a lead screw that is sold from this website store as a standard part of MPCNS and it is 300mm long, this gives you an idea of how long it is supposed to be: https://vicious1-com.myshopify.com/collections/parts/products/300mm-leadscrew-and-nut

2. there is also a all-lengths calculator (can be found on this page: https://www.vicious1.com/assembly/conduit-rails-tubes-pipes/ in the bottom), that would give you all lengths you need (including leadscreew and conduits) if you want to go beyond standard
