I am looking for an answer to the following question: How is the production cost of a precision screw related to the pitch (t.p.i.) of the screw (assuming that the diameter is constant)?

Could any body please comment on this.

My only idea is that a finer thread when precision cut takes longer to make the passes. On the other hand the coarse thread requires more depth to be cut. I'm thinking it may be a moot point.

my two cents...

The worst suggestion of your lifetime may be the catalyst to the grandest idea of the century, never let suggestions go unsaid nor fail to listen to them.
