Correction: the diameter is 1/4″ but the thread pitch is still 28.

McMaster-Carr has hand taps here: http://www.mcmaster.com/#hand-taps/=4ruio9

A local machine shop could clean it for you. Be sure to tell them that the rubber should not rest on a flat surface.

Another idea is to use a round wire brush. The bristles should be a brass or nylon, because steel may damage the interior threads. A Dremmel attachment might work. But proceed with caution.

It’s best to bring in the screw to be sure, but I just measured one: 3/16″ diameter with a thread pitch of 28 (meaning 28 threads per inch).

Likely there is roller material in the threads. You may need to use a tap to clean out the threads.
