    I've been happily using the "beta" threaded heatsink for a while now. In my latest re-design, I'm going with a threaded top plate instead of a hole with a nut. The issue I'm seeing is how to tighten the heatsink without scarring the outside with pliers, If there was a small flat machined on the outside of the last one or two layers at the bottom of the heatsink, say 17mm to be convenient with the wrenches I have, it'd let me get a wrench on it to tighten it down.
