So, a little extra nudge from the pliers couldn't hurt
, eh?

Oh wow, thanks for pointing that out. Very cool!
I may have tried putting one of those long hexagon nuts in the middle of the tension rods to make tightening easy.
Either that or grind a flat spot each side of the tension rod.

Either of those options would be good. Or you could place one nut at the end of the conventionally threaded part and a reverse threaded nut at the end of the reverse threaded part. The two nuts would lock each other in place and serve as a nice place to give a little nudge with a wrench or pliers.

Rather than this elaborate double-lug tensioning system, wouldn't it be easier just to use a little wood epoxy and an internal re-ring to lock the two shells together?
