We have a Bombay tilt table (12MS), circa 2001, with single leg and 19-1/2" diameter table top, purchased used. At some point in the past, the connection between leg and the 5"x5"x1-1/2" wood hinge block failed, and someone used nails and screws to secure everything back together, which also disabled the tilt mechanism. Whatever hardware secured leg and hinge block together is gone.
It appears the leg and hinge block were secured together with a combination of threaded rod and perhaps some type of tee nut. Within the leg top is a female insert with 5/16" x 18 threads. At the point where the leg would attach to the hinge block, the hinge block is recessed 1/8" deep for a diameter of 1-1/2". Within the 1-1/2" recess is a further recess of 13/16" deep at a diameter of 3/8". Whatever fit into the recesses on the hinge block appears to have been secured by screws or nails in the 1/8" recess between 3/16" and 3/4" radii.
Hopefully, terminology and description are suffient, as furniture restoration is certainly not a strength of mine. A picture could be attached, if helpful.
What I would like to understand and obtain is the metal fastener which is missing.
