I'm making bar ends in tech some time this week and I was planning on tapping my bars at home, but the cheapest set that has the right size tap/die is $70! To buy JUST the 20mm x1.5 tap and die is $30!!!!

This.

They are incredibly simple to design/build. There are a handful of different styles as well.
