Raincover Can Design.

I'm working on my 3rd generation raincover and I'd like to do something a bit nicer in construction quality this time around.

In other words, I want an male-threaded muzzle end cap. I'll use this to access the core of my design- on those very rare occasions where I need / want to clean out the core (I've never done anything more than dunk and rinse my previous raincovers). This may even allow me to move to generation 4 with only a swap of the core.

The can of the raincover so far is looking to be 6061 Aluminum with a 2.25" O.D. x .065 Wall (2" I.D.)

Here's my problem- I don't know squat about applying threading to a part. What would be the best threading for the I.D. of this stock?

As we are not talking more than a very few PSI worth of pressure, you don't really have to worry about getting the "best" threads. I suspect that any thread you wish to cut will work.

I use orings for friction and things stay together very well.

Thanks for the reply!

I wasn't worried at the least about blowing the cap off but, rather, durability for screwing, unscrewing, etc. I would also like it to be threaded to hold the core in position.
