I am looking for an inexpensive threaded carbon fork. Any ideas? Thanks in advance for any help.

Threading CF doesn't work too well - that is not at all. You're cutting across the very thing that gives the structure it's integrity (i.e. the actual carbon fibers).

If you want a carbon steerer then you're going to have to suck it up and go threadless.
maybe he means carbon blades, threaded steerer?nm

Maybe he needs to clarify his question. Maybe.

People actually go looking for threaded carbon steerer forks.

Pay attention to the steerer length and size...

I make no claims about the products they might offer...

What do you consider "cheap"?

We abide.

Remain In Light.
this should work....dupe

I've got one of these forks on my Kestrel and its as nice as a Look HSC or Colnago Star (on my other two bikes). Not as light because it has a steel steerer. As Grzy points out, you cannot get a threaded carbon fork with a carbon steerer. If you're looking for a good deal on a dependable, nice riding threaded carbon fork, you cannot beat it an EMS for $125.
