Nuts for bed bolts

This is my first post - hope it's in the right place...

I recently bought a 2nd hand bed, and one of the metal inserts to receive the bed bolt was missing. The inserts are NOT the common type of cylindrical dowel, but are large pieces with a square cross-section. They have an M8 thread. This image: shows what I'm looking for, but they are out of stock. I've done a pretty thorough search of google and ebay and I can't find anything other than that link.

Can anyone suggest where I might find one of these? Just to reiterate, these are NOT the common bed bolts that are readily available on ebay and in some hardware stores.

Wow, thanks... I thought I'd searched pretty well... I feel a bit daft now.

The first ones you posted are M6 but the 2nd ones look exactly right.

Thanks again!
