We recently moved and in the process several of these screws were lost. The longer screws attach to the legs of the table which in the put into the base and held into place with the smaller screw. Can anyone identify the name of the screw and where I might be able to locate a replacement? Any guidance is much appreciated.

I called the manufacturer and they redesigned the table and no longer can help with the older model.

I have already been to both Home Depot and Lowes and they couldn’t help.

The parts are almost a cross dowel, but they look like a custom part for that manufacturer. You could try a local machine shop to make a copy. Might be costly though.

You can probably make the part by using a threaded rod with the same diameter and thread and then cut it and drill the upper hole. You might need to put a drop or 2 of locktite on the bottom thread to keep it in place. You could flatten the upper section a bit and then drill the hole in order to have the correct diameter hole. Should be OK for a replacement fix.

Yup, custom part. Drive a screw in. Use PL glue. Then wood filler, sand, stain, clear coat. Done. Get on to the next project.
