Default fork tube shortening - thread count of top cap ?

So I'm going to cut down my fork tubes so they aren't sticking out of the trees since i've lowered the front end. Does anyone in their infinite wisdom know what thread count/size tap the top caps are ?

i have a guy that can do the pair in illinois for $60 plus freight but kind of a pita since i'm in california. Would rather do it myself and then send em out to be dlc'd black.

HELP !!!!!

send it out and have it done. There fine thread and one miss turn of the tap and there junk.
By the way the threads and cut in on a special machine and the metric to boot.

Now that i think of it they always cut down the other end cause no one has the the thread maching.
Look into forking by frank they have been doing it for over fifty years
