Default What is this called?

I know it's called a stopper insert, but what is the real name for it?
I have Googled threaded insert, etc. but I can't find them anywhere, other than the suppliers for turning supplies.

Thanks for any help.

It's a threaded insert for wood. Check you your local Mom & Pop hardware store. Most big box stores won't know what it is.

Look up knurled spacer, knurled nut, knurled insert and knurled connector. I think some are referred to as stand offs too. Smaller ones are used to put circuit boards in a stack but separated. Just make sure it's not threaded left one side, right the other unless that's what you want.

if you look up "knurled thread insert" you will find several styles of this.

I know that PeachtreeUSA carries some that are similar to that one. They are brass and cost $6.00 to 10.

Did you actually look at those prices? PTUSA has them way cheaper than that.

I actually have a MSC within minutes of me. I can get packs of 25 for about $6-$15, depending on sizes and threads.
So, being that their prices from above website, start around $.60, it's not too bad. Try buying local, then talk about pricing. Fortunately, I don't have to pay shipping, I just stop in at MSC, and pick up anything from their catalog. I also have a Grainger around the corner from MSC, but most times, it takes a couple of days to get stuff from them. MSC... walk in and order, and walk out with item(s).
