Many ways to skin a cat i guess.

I wonder where the practice of using them came from given so many alternatives.

Having said that can you have too many accessories?

Until you're comfortable with threading, practice on plastic pipe. It's cheap, and forgiving.
Actually, the only internal thread I have done so far WAS on plastic pipe - it was a connector that threaded onto a speaker driver for a talkbox (think Frampton).
