How to set a screw thread into a cone perfect centered

Hi MM users,

i would need your help for a special task:

 

I have to set a internal screw thread into the bottom of a printed cone (see picture).

There will be turned in a screw for a grinding machine.

The thread should be very good centered so that there will not be any imbalance when turning around with high speed.

 

Is there a workflow to do this or is it only possible to set it "by hand" ?

 

Thank you for your help ๐Ÿ™‚

Need to use pivots: https://help.autodesk.com/view/MSHMXR/2019/ENU/?guid=GUID-EDB35D1E-13EB-4689-A83E-DD8C1D71CDC2

 

Generate facegoups, drop a pivot at group centre on both objects, align one object onto the other, then boolean difference.
