Comments about 5/16-18 Steel Threaded Inserts:
The oak table set we bought @ Nebraska Furniture Mart years ago finally started having some loose legs. Come to find out the manufacturer used Soft wood inserts instead of Hard wood inserts. I did some searching and these are the perfect fix. No more loose legs. SOLID now.. And these will not break like the cheap zinc cast inserts orginally used.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Older furniture repair

Perfect for replacing carriage bolts with machine screws in older furniture where the wood has dried too much to hold the original bolts. Used to repair the leg mounts on a large mahogany dining table. 5/16 thread is a good choice. 3/8 would be useful too.

Purchased these threaded inserts to mount a workbench top to my bench. Very nice well built product. The only probelm I had was getting them to screw in straight. I used a 8mm ball head hex wrench, that was probably the problem. If I used a straight hex head tool, it would have worked better. Other than that they worked great and I would highly recommend them.

My expensive dining room table set came with cheap inserts to bolt the legs on and soon they were all starting to break and strip out. These steel inserts went in tight and fixed the chairs far better than the original inserts. Price is better than others and shipping was cheap and fast.
I needed alot of holding power in wood and that is what I got.
