Although bed bolts are common, finding one designed to secure from the bedrail into the post is rather difficult. I did see that one system that uses a C shaped washer and what appears to be a nut on the end of a threadall bolt. It does use a threaded insert though, which is what I am lookng for. I have already made the mortis and tennons for the bedrail to fit snuggly into the posts. i still may end up combining two different pieces. Use the modern bed bolt, but use a threaded insert in the post. Most the bed bolt I have seen are 3/8” 16, and the inserts come in that size.
