Could someone help me ID the thread on a male fitting

I have a male fitting. (it was screwed into one of the hoses of my ill
fated plasma torch). Now that I removed it, I can use it to identify
threads on the torch.
Thread OD = 14.23mm = .5605 inch
Exactly four steps of this thread take 0.2740 inch or 6.96mm. That
means 4*1/0.2740 = 14.59 TPI.
I do not place great faith into my measurement of thread step, but I
tried very hard.

It may not be any of these, bit at least it's a start.

Mark, I was at NAPA again today, and we definitely confirmed for sure that it is 9/16-18 NF thread. Which is great, as bolts and threaded rods of this size are common. I ordered a 10 pack of such bolts at McMaster this afternoon, they are supposed to ship tonight. All I need is to drill one through and weld on a 1/4" nipple and some steel angle (for screwing down to some piece of dielectric) on the other side, should not be difficult. If some air leaks around the flare, not a big deal, and I hope to avoid even that.
I definitely appreciate you taking tme to look all that up -- and sorry for my not so good measurement of thread pitch.

It can be a real bugger to get an accurate reading on a few turns of thread in an inaccessible place. The good news is that if it is only a few turns, then even the wrong pitch will probably screw on. Although I was less then happy about the job we did in a British steel works 20 years back, where we had 1/2" BSP fittings and they had 1/2" NPT fittings. 1 1/2 turns of engagement with 2000psi behind it is not even funny!

Well, because it is a flare style fitting, it has to screw in quite a few turns to seal (maybe 4-5 turns). Anyhow, now that I will have some bolts, I will be able to whip up something.
