threaded inserts?

i bought 2 shells from a sale/fair close to zeeland last summer. I had 2 H bases from earlier modifications of our other HM furniture. I thought the 2 would fit together nicely.

To my suprise, there is no threads on the shells what-so-ever, none of the 4 holes had any.

so, I am wondering, because I would love to fix these the correct way, if you sell these parts and if so how much are they and where could i purchase them from?

I have tried multiple times to contact HM direclty with no luck, your help is uber appreciated. thanks.

Are the bases all interchangeable?

If a person has Eiffel Tower bases and wants to switch to dowel is that a possibility? Will it fit the shell?

Best Answer: Yes, the Armchair shell is interchangeable between all three base options (4-leg, wire, wood dowel).
