Thanks for the replies gentlemen. I think you are correct, it’s a lightweight steel. Welding on a nut would be the simplest solution, but when I have had metal work done before here in San Francisco, all the shops had a minimum fee of $70 – $80.

I’m not sure there’s enough thickness for a heli coil, but that’s great information to know. It’s basically the metal version of the threaded inserts I have used in wood. I’ll do some research.

Kenny, drilling and tapping for a larger bolt sounds like it might be a good solution.
