What Do You Call This Thingy?
 
I know I've seen them, but I haven't got a clue as to what they're called. It's the metal shaft that is threaded in the interior so that it can act as a female to a bolt. The shaft is then glued into a hole in wood, so that a bolt can be threaded in and out multiple times without damaging the wood.

Help?

I've never used glue in, the ones I have used in a few furniture building projects were simply called "threaded inserts" and "cross dowels". They are used for exactly what you describe. might want to try woodcraft.com, they sell alot woodworking hardware.

I want to build a table that will travel a lot. I need to be able to take the legs off and put them on often.

RT is correct, Threaded Inserts if his supplier doesnt have them try Rockler.com
