"Wood needs a liner, derlin, aluminum or brass works well, best to make the lower sections from ebonite , don't need multi start taps, basic metric HSS plug taps work fine, I use either 1 1/2 or 2 inch round dies and a 12$ die holder , chuck it in the tail stock with a drill chuck or can even slide it on a punch rod chucked in a collet

I do by hand on my wood lathe, i do have a machinst lathe but you would not use the the threading gears and a threading bit for something that small in soft material"

I did woner about using national fine single start taps and dies, but had not thought about the possibility of threading a liner glued in the wood. Back to the drawing board.
