Adding some silicon dioxide (anti-caking agent) to your garlic powder might help prevent clumps (it's how the spice industry does it). Also, possibly adding something non-magnetic (such as a glass marble) might give you more 'clump-busting power' when shaking the grains loose.https://www.americanspice.com/silicon-dioxide/"Simply Organic" brand garlic powder is more coarsely ground than many "garlic powders" and is less prone to clumping. I buy it by brand specifically because of this fact (I don't care about 'organic' labels).
You could use a block of material with a hole to match the thread. Then drill a hole through the center for a screw with the point filed down to match the profile of the thread. The point of the screw will follow the thread. Accuracy is your friend.
