There is a set called a tap and die set....the taps are for taping holes with threads and the dies are for making threads on a rod. They look like a nut but have special cutting edges on the inside.

This is the set I started out with a long time ago...

My rock knob gets very cold. I keep my sons baby socks on it all winter. A cool way to remind me how small he was.

I wouldn't worry about that so much as the new die will cut threads right over um, but if you wanted to you could file them down or use a grinder.
