Default tooling for threading

You can make your own internal threading tool using drill rod. Machine a 60 deg taper from both sides and grind it down just past half way and on the back side leaving a 60 degree tip on a small diameter rod. Taps are so much easier to use and repeatable though.
You will have to heat above where the steel no long sticks to a magnet and quench to harden.
