Does anyone know the size of the die needed to fix the thread on a T spindle, and is there one for left handed thread?

Thanks in advance

Thanks Fred. That list says 3/4-16. Grangers has a set that has that die. They may also have a left one too.

In the past I've used a small file to straighten out the damaged area on the spindle then used a good spindle nut to chase the thread slowly. It worked pretty well.

MSC or ENCO is likely to have your best price. You can build your own by cutting notches in the id of a nut with a hacksaw and then adding an internal taper and cyanide hardening with a torch. You need to make sure there are no burrs before you harden the nut. You might want to split the nut and start on a good part of the thread and work outward over the bad part. You can use a pair of vise grips to hold the two halves of the nut together.
