Re: OT: swivel joint design
I think your analysis is spot-on with regards to stripping due to an axial load (pull out force).*
Fine threads are going to be easier for a gorilla with a wrench to strip, for the same material. Fine threaded fasteners seem to be more likely to be hardened, however, which may frustrate the gorilla.
*Fine may be a tiny bit weaker, due to required clearance spaces. The difference is unlikely to matter.
