The Beall Wood threader makes wooden threads on the screw and includes a tap for making the female threads. For the 1.25 and 1.5” size it is 5 threads per inch. Don’t know if that is too fine for what you want.

If you build your own threading jig, you can buy carbide 60 degree V cutters. Might hold up better, and definitely be quicker that reworking an old file into a cutter. You could probably use the cutter for your current thread cutter as well. I wish there was a Beall type threader for two, two and a half, and three inch screws that could be purchased.
