I’m really into refurbishment.I love old things and especially lamps.Nice job on the lamp. Obviously, your neighbor was thinking he was glad to be rid of it.If he sees it now and asks for it back you should charge for the work and materials.I’d say $150.00 US.No kidding!

Those look like acme thread, like you have on the end of a mop or broom handle. You can get a die to cut them at Woodcraft. Congrats on a nice restoration and keeping the landfill from filling up too fast.

Thanks for the comments guys. I DO appreciate them.
David: Thanks for your efforts and locating that site. I did something similar a while back to see what I could find also. The Largest “Tap & Die” type threader I could find was 1-1/2” on Woodcraft (Thanks Knothead), Eagle goes up to 1”. The threads on the Lamp are 2-1/2” Diameter, I should have mentioned that above. That’s one of the reasons I thought it might be reasonably old and some other method of making both threads was used.
Don: They saw the Lamp after it was done, SHE thought I should just GIVE it back to them “Because I enjoy Woodworking and it’s JUST a Hobby anyway.” I suggested $50.00 (STUPID!) SHE said.. “What! I only paid $15.00 at a Gargage Sale in the first place!” That Tinkled me off, so I said as you suggested “Okay how about $150.00?” A SHORT conversation ensued, they left. DUH!!!
I gotta find out about those threads or …. No sleep again tonight …LOL…

patron and rick, unless I’m mistaken, Roy Underhill has a program on making these.
Just found a link to it – here:
I remember seeing the program a long time ago. Hey, might be a fun project just to make your own wood threading tools.
