    Ask your customer.

    They're the one who ultimately determines whether or not your product meets spec.

    Camera shutters have external threads of M61 with 0,75mm pitch (roughly 32tpi).
    That's the highest I found with a quick search in my datasheets.
    There are other larger shutters.

    As Ted mentioned, they're taper pin reamers.

    They're used to open up drilled holes to fit taper pins.
    You drill a hole slightly smaller than the small end of the pin, then ream it to size.

    Good choice.
    The 1N5408 is rated 3 amps at 1000 PIV.

    I use them for all similar clamping requirements for relays and such.

    Most modern RS-232 interfaces will work with no flow-control protocol active.
    Flow control goes back to the days of 300-baud modems that had to switch between transmit and receive.

    If you can answer the question, please do so in this thread.

    There's no reason for the OP to "contact you".

    Define "convert".
