No, what he was trying to explain to you, is that you have to start paying for advertisement.

Eek

Are those tightening notations milled/ lasered into it + paint in the debossed areas? Damn impressive if so. Salute

How do you get it to stay firm inside a BB without threads? Is it shimmed perfect to size that it presses in and acts like a press fit bearing? Or??

I'd guess there are threads that connect the two pieces where that parting line is in the middle.

Even if that were the case, the strength would be too weak. The amount of force put on it externally from a rotation wouldn't hold up. It would still need to be press fit somehow, then obviously that would void the ability to thread the center. There's a reason external BB are designed the way they are...
