modeling a thread and matching thread on the cap

I'm trying to model a thread for the first time, on a neck about 1" diameter, with a cap to screw onto it.

Are there any tutorials on making threads? Any standards to follow in terms of pitch, height, turns, etc?

Once the thread is made, how do you go about making the matching thread on the cap?
