Have you considered a thread chaser tool or kit? I've used one like this for decades and it's saved me many a trip to the hardware store.
I'm fortunate to have an old-fashioned, mom & pop hardware store in our village. Nice to be able to stop in and buy a single fastener for a very reasonable price.
