I was thinking some aluminum bronze, that stuff is pretty dang tough but works really nice. If I were going to do the lead screw I'd probably use A1 tool steel. I can usually get it cheap and it works really nice and hardens easy without worrying about distortion. 

 

Taps run $50 and up new. $50 being the imported stuff. It usually isn't too hard to find a used tap on ebay that is affordable. Cutting an internal acme would be easier in bronze than steel but the cost would be 8x times higher for screwups.

 

Aluminum bronze is fun stuff to work with. I like the idea of brass as it's easy to work with and has some good lubricating properties like the bronze but not as spendy.

For goodness sake, do not trash it. It is repairable and someone out there would be willing to do the repairs and give it a new lease on life.
