Thank you Mal and Bryan.

Greg, the bakelite was great to work with. I drilled slowly (time wise) with cooking spray as a lubricant so as to reduce the amount of heat. I also drilled with increasing sizes of drill bits until the proper diameter.

The bakelite threaded wonderfully, though as you can see, I didn't make any male threads. I read some posts on here that said the male threads didn't do well. I did all the threading with taps.

The bakelite didn't turn normally. I wasn't getting ribbons but rather dust or pebbles. This is with a metal lathe.

These blanks came from a large 9 inch rod that was over 1.5 inches thick. I split the blank lengthwise down the middle to increase the usable blanks from this rod. I have a lot of pics I could post in a separate thread if someone wants.
