Phil Wood Fixed Hub with Freewheel... help!

I have a back wheel that has a Phil Wood single fixed hub. I would like to put a freewheel on it. I know that it will work, but will it strip the threads? Phil Woods are such nice hubs, and I have a White Industries ENO freewheel. The last thing I would want to do is ruin both my hub and freewheel. Getting a new hub is not an option. Any suggestions or ideas on what I can do to make this work without stripping the threads?

Grease the threads and don't over-tighten.
