Thread cutting oil for stainless steel?

Still working on this project. I have ordered a new rod of 1/2" 303 stainless ans the only American made cutting die I could find (Irwin). Everything I have read says to use a good cutting oil for stainless and many recommend Rigid Extreme Performance-but i can only find that in gallons and I only need to cut two 2" long thread portions.

Any suggestions for a less expensive but successful substitute will be greatly appreciated.
