Wow. How did you manage to get the threading correct?

I whacked this together in Tinkercad. They have a customizable "screw thread" part/script with all the necessary variables.

You can quite precisely measure the thread pitch (or threads per inch), outside diameter, and inside thread diameter with a pair of calipers. These, along with the overall "screw" height is all you need. Some trial and error was necessary; the first one I printed was too tight.
