Thanks very much for any information.
In the photo, it looks like a forged part. Short of finding
a blacksmith, your best bet might be (1) find matching-diameter
rod stock or pipe, drilling/tapping/hacksawing, or (2) using a
regular nut and a really thick square chunk of steel as a
Alternative 2 will crush some of the wood fiber,but you
could combine the two, first lining the hole with a tube, then
piercing the tube and fitting a loose nut inside the tube.
Bed bolts are available, of course, but that's most useful for a
new design, won't necessarily fit your existing frame.
