will need to get a bigger die stock too.
You have a lathe, make one.
As said above the side of the die with the markings on it has the lead in, when I was trained it was drummed in, for hand threading with taps and dies, with the job in the vice, put the die in the stock with the marking showing then turn it over and cut the thread, 1/4 turn forward and half back to clear, when you've had a poke with a scriber for getting it wrong you tend to remember these things.
