Threaded corner blocks / "L" brackets
I need to join two pieces of plywood to form a "T", and be able to repeatedly assemble / disassemble the joint. After initial fabrication, I will only have access to the "top" surface of the "T". Thus, reassembly will be a blind operation.
I have tried using threaded inserts in the vertical piece of plywood, attaching the top piece using through-hole allen wrench head connector bolts. However, repeated tightening of the connector bolt eventually pulls the inserts from the vertical plywood.
I have also tried using barrel nuts in the vertical piece, but with repeated use they become sloppy and rotate, making blind reassembly very difficult.
I am now on a quest for something like a metal "L" with an integral nut that I can screw into the vertical piece of plywood near the top, and then access the nut through a hole in the "top" piece of plywood.
Can anyone here point me towards such a connector?
