How to measure neck finish?
1. Find the diameter of the cap and measure from one side of the inner wall to the other, or calculate the finish of the neck by measuring the diameter of the outermost thread.
2. See how many times the threads pass each other to determine completion. (eg 24mm diameter, 1 thread = 24/400 neck finish)
