I would imagine a hardware store or funiture making supplier. Did you try rockler and woodcraft. There is another company that has alot of wierd little things like that called Lee Valley. Hope this helps.
how big are they?OldGrampa said:These are from a chair made in malaysia.
Anyone know what they are called,
and where I might get them?
Tx for any comments.
I'll look at Lowes here. I emailed Granger, Rockler & Mcmaster-Carr, they all said No, they didn't have.I found parts like that at Lowes in the drawer marked furniture. The ones I used had a 1/4 X 20 threaded hole.
Friends don't let friends use stamped metal tools sold at clothing stores.
if you asked a Lowes worker. you prolly won't find them. They're in the hardware section in the drawer marked Furniture. might have been HD. I get them mixed up. they're only separated by a street.OldGrampa said:I'll look at Lowes here. I emailed Granger, Rockler & Mcmaster-Carr, they all said No, they didn't have.

In the hardware section inside one of the pull out drawers that contain all different types of odds and ends. I found them by scanning the pictures on the front of the drawers, walking real slow.......
Ended up finding a threaded retainer clip that failed on my 1988 John Deere too!
Just a wierd little fitting piece that i never dreamed of finding at Lowes. I love that section of the store. Needed to replace a little piece that attaches the throttle cable to the throttle arm on the carb of my sons go kart.....right to Lowes, right to the drawers...there it was:thumbsup:
It appears both of us were wrong. I called the device a thread insert and you called it a cross dowel and this thing is both. It has the cross dowel on the bottom half of it which is broken and the thread insert in the top of it. Without having one to get specific dimensions on the placement of the cross dowel hole, overall length and the bolt sizes I don't think any of us are going to find this thing. I know it would take a better internet than I have to make the search.They are called cross dowels http://www.rocklerpro.com/product.cfm?page=367&site=ROCKLER or you can get them at Menards or Lowes.
