I have a Feinwerkbau Model 800 Evolution and yesterday dropped the air cylinder tube on the ground and damaged the male tube threads. Can you tell me the correct thread count/pitch or the die needed to re-thread the male tube threads?

Thanks!

From measurements taken off the bleed cap, I'd say it's an M18 x 1.5.

Just wondering how you will rethread using a die when the start threads are the damaged ones. Going to have to split the die first with a Dremel or crack it open with the die holder I guess.
