Don't know exactly what kind of thread damage you have but if just a few dings, you might look for a "thread file".
They are about 10 inches long. 3/8 square and have teeth on them the same pitch as threads.
One file for course pitch and one file for fine pitch threads.
8 different thread pitches per file. one on each flat on each end of the file.
Great for fixing small dings.
