    so I'm in love with changing out my cone colors on my eGo to match what I'm wearing, totally metro I know... I use a 901 to 510 adaptor on my SD mkII, and was thinking it would be awesome to be able to add a cone to my SD by adding some width to the adapter, and threads that would match the threads on the cone. I have access to machining tools to make this happen, but I need to know the thread count, and pitch on the cone to make it happen.

    Anyone know?

    I think the SD looks even more wonderful with a cone on it, but it needs to stay in place to work!!!

    Your not going to find that size in a local hardware store or in any metric tap and die kits. It is a odd ball size not commonly used. Any kit is going to have a 12mm x 1.25 or 1.50 or 1.75 are the common ones. But you can get it off amazon from victor tools thats the only place i could find it here in the states. here is the link Amazon.com: 12mm X .5 High Speed Steel Round Die 1" OD: Home Improvement

    Edit: If you have access to a machine shop lathe that does metric .5 you could always cut the threads. This is a really fine thread though not the easiest to cut unless your an experienced machinist
