Well, the other possibility is buying a die to thread out a piece of 5/16" rod, which probably is easier to access to than a fairly complicated lathe that can accurately cut out the threads (it would need to be electronically done, so this would be quite an expensive machine!)

I was hoping not to buy a die as this is a one-time deal, I doubt I'd need to cut another one I hope. The die probably would cost more than a Schrader valve

(also as an afterthought, a piece of steel rod is probably more resistive than a Schrader valve which are usually made of ... brass? Hmmm.)
