but this leads me to my original statement.... say we take the area of a coarse thread engagement over 1 inch compared to the same for a fine thread.... this gives us 2 different areas (and the difference between the 2) from there we need to figure the same thing for the aluminum that it is threaded into and determine whether the minor diameter of the bolt is weak link or the area of the threads in the aluminum.

I dont feel like working it out but im going to stand by my original statement that a coarse thread is better in 6061 and lesser quality aluminums and a fine thread is better in 7075.
