Making an internal threaded tube to hold it would work also, but the steps involved are more than starting from scratch.

You could also try to protect the threads and install the piece in the lathe chuck. I would use a four jaw as opposed to a three to spread the load around . (Less pressure on four points instead of three). There might be a little damage to the threads at four points, but you can clean that up and they will still work. I would try some thicker plastic on the jaws of the chuck. Heat it slightly before tightening down. I have also got lucky with stuff like this using large heat shrink tubing. I used two layers and not a scratch on the threads.

Long term thinking and planning. That's what I would expect from a maester.
I have mine for just a couple of years, since I have started only 3 years ago;)

Bump for a great post- @Bigwaved we heed more photos of these builds!
"Ah, I'd love to wear a rainbow every day,
And tell the world that everything's OK,
But I'll try to carry off a little darkness on my back,
'Till things are brighter, I'm the Man In Black."
