    What is the correct name for this style of 'bolt' that is made to turn by hand?

    Goes in to the (out of focus) pictured t nut in the bed rail. I need a couple more. The nuts are easy to find on line, but I don't know what to use as a search name for the bolts.

    Thanks!

    horn that plays "la cuka racha,"
    I was thinking that too, but upon closer inspection, it appears to be a doohickey, maybe even possibly a thingamajig.

    many Ace hardware stores have these in stock, at least for american thread sizes. metric sizes, you'll need to order online, or Fastenal, or something.

    Well, the specific answer is 'fluted knob', at least for the vendor that has the exact match to what I pictured.

    Popped into my local Fastenal store with high hopes, left with dashed hopes. They have similar, but not in stock. It was only a couple miles from me, so I figured it was worth a try.

    @samiam, your link got me close, and I found the exact match knob, including the T nuts, on Amazon. So, order placed. Project has advanced enough to be serviceable until the new bits get here to finish it off.

    Thanks folks!
