Anyone out there know if I can have a 1" square rod turned down to a
standard thread (UNC) 1" diameter rod?
In theory, yes, because the basic major diameter of a 1-8 UNC thread is 1 inch. In practice the bar is not likely to be exactly 1 inch an a side or a perfect square. Also in practice, it's an awful lot cheaper to buy threaded or upset rod and more reliable if the threads are rolled than if they're cut.
