I need a lamp tube, a metal threaded rod, hollow, about 20 inches long.  
This will be used to make a light box for turning wooden hats, I am
feeling adventurous.  

Anyone know where I can find a lamp tube?

Most hardwares stores carry these.  "LampParts" is a product line that you
will likely see in the US.  What these are is all-threaded 1/8" pipe,
straight thread.  Dan

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
As Dan Bollinger mentioned, what you are looking for is 1/8" pipe thread on
the outside.  Since all you are trying to do is mount a light socket on it,
you could just use a piece of 1/8" pipe, threaded on at least one end.
