How do you thread parts by hand? Especially the female side (I’ve hand cut male threads before with diamond files but no idea how you could do the female side by hand).

I don’t, yet. I have been looking at tap & die sets though.
I’m just a scavenger, those threaded parts are from one of those cheap laser pointers Wink
