In the lathe it's easy to face one end of threaded rod and center drill rod. Install a live center, Chuck up threaded rod and take two .015" cuts, That will be the height of the .060" threads. The rod in the center will be turned down to 3/8" of a inch in diameter. Now try bending it.

The old project needed 70 each 1/2" u-bolts for 2" tubing for $6 each for $350.
