As for the nail. I was just replacing what was there. All the nail is there for, is to keep the spindle from turning, due to foot on it. As I was removing the old tenon, I did find a nail. Pulled the old nail out, and finished drilling the “new” hole. A look at the “old” spindle:

That old piece of Oak beside it, was where a new spindle came from:

Since both tenons had broken off the old spindle (BEFORE I got the chair) I was free to size new ones. I also pre-drilled the new holes, and then sized the new tenons, using an open-end wrench as a size guide. It also took about two tries to get the colour to match.
