Default Pg 47-14; Stainless Pin

Trying to cut threads into the stainless pins per the plans. I can't get more than about 1/4 inch done before the pin just starts turning in the vise, no matter how much pressure I put on it. The threads that I am cutting are clean.

I feel like I'm missing something obvious here, it seems like it shouldn't be this hard. Using WD-40 for lube and going very slow. New die, Irwin brand, probably not the best.

Any advice?
