Ah, that looks totally like something we could make in-house. My set of dies goes up to M12 if that's useful for putting threads onto some bar stock... mightn't need anything that thick I guess (the set has smaller than that too, obv.) Then it'd be a case of some laser-cut plates and careful measurement, no? Maybe a 3d printed knurled knob for the adjuster, if you want to pull in another tool... :-D
