I'm trying to find a way to make a standard thread mount hole in a
wood block so that it could be mounted to the standard thread on a
painters pole. Is there a tool that I could use to make this type of
threaded hole? I have been buying standard threaded scrub brushes and
tearing out the bristles to get a flat piece of wood with the threaded
hole on the other side. There has to be a better way, but I can't
find it online. Being able to make anything mountable to a painters
pole threading would be a wonderful time saver for me. Please let me
know if such a tool exists, or if there is a part that I could attach
to a block of wood that has the female standard threading.

As mentioned by the other post a 1/2" pipe thread might work
broom handle threads are ACME style threads, the most common being
of course being broom handles & not going on the space shuttle the
care & tolerances in mfg are pretty sloppy so fit up between devices
is pretty "hit or miss"
here's a link to a handle company
and a discussion on an engineering forum
Assuming you can't find a proper thread tap...
1. Drill an oversized hole in your block of wood
2. Fill hole with Bondo (auto body filler)
3. Rub vaseline on the threads of a pole
4. Stick threaded pole in center of hole
5. Let Bondo harden
6. Unscrew pole
7. Enjoy your new threaded hols

Not much help, but many years ago, a friend bought a machine at an
estate sale for under $100 that was able to make a standard threaded
hole as well as thread the end of a pole to match. He bought it just
because he thought it was a clever little machine.
The machine was slightly larger than a sawhorse.
I wish he still had it, as I could find uses for it.
