A cheap tap and die for TI is like using a flyswatter to kill a bear.

While it may work..... it is going to take a while and likely will end poorly for some one.

This may be against the grain; but how about tapping the back block for a set screw, and forgo threading the Ti at all.

I actually wish back blocks were that way normally. If you strip out the threads on a normal back block you are kinda stuck without much of an easy solution, if you strip a set screw simply tap for the next size up.

It might be cocker blasphemy but I hate backblocks and on body ASA's. Just call me the cocker mohel cuz all my **** that's not cut soon will be.

But that's not a bad idea on the sleds, I could maybe drill out the hole and put a metal sleeve in their with set screws, it might actually give the block some more strength.

Plus it would make it a lot easier to adjust the backblock length.

Got one done for my midget pump project. Any suggestions on how to hold it in place without getting tool marks on the rod? It was difficult but not as difficult as I thought. Polished and put it on the gas stove and into the sink to give it a nice color and to quench it.

I think the fear of titanium comes more from machining it rather then using hand tools. With hand tools I had the luxury of stopping before anything really binded and I used that springy quality to basically work the tap back and fourth pushing a little further each time.

And yes, I realize the irony of screwing titanium into plastic. This is more of a "cuz I can" project then anything that has any real world value.
