Okay as the title says i need some bolts for where a folding chair would pivot. However i don’t want to have anything sticking out and i am planning on using pretty thin stock so i can’t recess very far, maybe 1/4 of an inch…half inch at the most. Anyone know of a way to do this without having a bolt or nut sticking out of the sides of the chair? i was thinking something like a bolt with a thread inside but i cannot find anywhere to buy these, maybe im searching the wrong term. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Google Chicago Screws. Not sure they make them big enough for your application but it may point you in the right direction.

gfadvm you are fantastic! Turns out those go by many names. sex bolt, barrel nut, barrel bolt, Chicago screw or post and screw. They do make them the size i will be needing, roughly 1” long. Thank you so much!
