That is a great solution and the kind I like to look for when out shopping it is just amazing what can be used and made to work .
I just pulled apart a deodorant stick and inside there is a threaded shaft with a fairly coarse that I think could be made to work .
Thanks Klaus

Brilliant solution Jan. Not having your creativity I would have mounted it on my lathe and used the same basic method I use to cut rope twists and such. That is; by marking out the pitch and path of the threads, cutting to depth with a handsaw and then hand chiseling out between the saw cuts. That is one of things I love about woodworking, there are many ways to get the same results.

I probably would have had a handsaw and a rasp out, tried about 3 times, failing at every attempt, and finally just saying ”Aw the hell with hit. I’ll just GLUE that dang thing in!”

But YOUR solution is …
