I want to make a simple bi-fold door using the hardware from another
broken door. I'm an amateur at this but it all seems pretty simple.
The only thing I'm wondering is how do I make the threaded hole that
will accept the pivot hardware? Is there some tool that will do this?

It uses a threaded pivot pin? Usually these things have a friction
fitted plastic socket into which the pivot slips. The sockets are
similar to those used with caster wheels/furniture glides, and should
be available at any hardware store. To install, simply bore the
appropriate sized hole and tap them into place. The pivot then slides
into the socket. Pretty simple. Unless you have something more
