Cav,

They aren't cheap, but I'm pretty sure a hss or cobalt thread mill would do what you need if you ever have to do it again. Carbide is a lot more common, but then you'd have to relieve it and that'd be a pain.

I think you could have done the same thing with a thread chasing file.

That would indeed be a heck of a lot of work for a project like Cav's.
Thanks Rod, I shouldn't do that kind of stuff in the middle of the night.

I thought about that and it probably would have worked. As noted my setup was rather unique as this was for a quantity of 4 and it was not terribly critical. Once I came up with a plan it only took about 30 seconds a block to mill.
