Thanks a lot! That's great news as I do have rolled ballscrews...
I knew if asked long enough someone would give me the answer I wanted!
Also my whack idea about the rotary table as screw cutting lathe ain't gonna work as the 2MT small end in the table is smaller than 16mm...
So carefully by hand with plenty of lube it is... sounds familiar!

Post it to me with the nut you want to use and I'll cut the thread on my lathe for the price of return postage.
Edit: Sorry I'm retracting that offer - I don't think this will help you as much as it might at first appear.
John S hit the nail on the head with "They can be screwcut with tipped tooling but I wouldn't fancy my chances with a die.".

Because John S has done it hundreds of times with his own compact design for mounting the motor, bearing, nut and coupling.
Patented that is as well.
No sticking the motor on two plates and 4 pillars. Its a CNC machine not a fcuking clock.

Depends how good you are.
Material is not a problem it is not "superhard", it peeled and rolled thread, typically St 52 , surface is hard due plastic deformation
Core is relatively soft. the best method would be to use the lathe, but it shall not be a problem to do it manually presuming you will use proper oil and non-chinese die ...
