1.29 is the OD of the thread. 24 tpi = 24 threads per inch, (the pitch) . If you could find a die (doubt it) it would cost more then a Chris King rear hub.
If you had a lathe and there's enough material on the hub you may be able to turn the 1.29 dia, then single point the thread.
Wait a minute, I have a lathe and an NOS screw on rear hub......?
I never thought of doing this before but ya got me thinking.................................
