I'm glad this subject has been brought up. I too am interested in opinions on threading tools. Also, other than practice, are there any good videos that teach threading?

Willy - I haven't used any of the above, but the business end of threaders is pretty simple - I got a set of old dies from a metal threader and welded a bolt to them for a handle -works great and cost me $5. You could go cheaper by grinding a 2 sides of a 1 inch threaded section, feathering the lead-in threads, and welding on handles.

Bill we have the expert on wood threading posting right here on the wrec. Fred holder, and he has taken the time to write a book about the procedure and the tools. Got a link here to Lee Valley they carry the book, and I think you should get it if you don't want to reinvent the wheel so to speek.
