There are regular "Weld nuts" ya knows.....

They have a rabbet fit dia, and 3 projections, made to be used
with a spot welder, work well with arc welding too.....

Thinking a bit more on this....you really don't need the hex do you ?

So you could take some round stock, chuck it in your lathe, and
tap it.

As mild steel is better welding, make the thread depth deeper to
make up (somewhat) for the lower strength.

While it's in the lathe, nick in that rabbet fit to center it
in the hole when welding.

I usually just cut a piece of flat bar, punch/drill and tap it. It give more surface area to weld, and is easy to tap, easy to hold in place too.
