Exclamation Craftsman soldering iron tip thread size?

Hello, all,

I hope that I am posting this to the correct place.

I have a 30 watt Craftsman soldering iron which is perfect for what my needs are. Model # 113.540410

However, every time I replace the tip the new ones get progressively harder to screw in due to junk and gunk clogging the threads in the iron.

The time to get a new tip approaches. However, despite the iron otherwise being in perfect working condition I fear that I may have to get a new iron instead due to the thread problem.

The Sears website has no info at all and I get blank stares at all the hardware / shop stores I've been to.

Would anyone know the thread size and diameter for this particular soldering iron?

It will be less expensive for me to just create a new thread (or clean it out) for each new tip than buying a whole new set up.

(who has another useless 30 watt iron sitting on the side due to the same reason.)
