Interesting stuff.

How about this Bolt-pressure sensor?

(I could think with angle milled heads for instance)

Bolted joints are an insane rabbit hole that can take over your life if you get into the hardcore engineering of it.

We've got a team of people who ONLY do bolted joint analysis, the information form we have to fill out and submit to have our setup analyzed makes you realize there's things you would never consider in the design. It's insane. It also makes you realize that many companies, even ones you might consider high quality, get it very wrong. Tough stuff.
