The tripod bushing on my 8x10 woodie is now "loose"... The camera had a tendency to 'rotate' a little when inserting the film holder due to the 1/4 inch
metal bushing on the camera base having become so 'loose'. It now rotates quite freely.

I am aware that the local hardware store has threaded inserts of this size,
but I have to think that I might prefer to remove the existing insert then apply a small amount of epoxy and replace it. I am at a loss as to finding the best means of removing the current insert since it now rotates quite freely and a threaded 'bolt' with two or more locking nuts would be the solution for re-inserting but I need to get the original out first.

Any and all suggestions from experienced bushing replacers would be appreciated.
