The Coal Iron press has replaceable threaded inserts in the press, so it's not a real concern about buggering up the threads. Just screw the inserts out (if not stuck and install new inserts.

Here are the widening/flat dies I just finished in the press. The welds are just tacked in at this point so they're really ugly! Not had a chance to use them yet, just finished now at 5:30pm.
YES!!! Those are AWSOME!!
