    So yes, it looks like the standard 3/8unf.

    Is this the kind of thing you mean? **Link**

    Was thinking if i can find a small enough bore then i could just screw it on?

    Thanks for the reply!

    It would be a 3/8 Unc, and the brass nut thing would be called a brass coupling nut. Normally they are sink plated steel in their common form.

    I made some easily on the lathe if you have access?

    Thanks a lot :-)

    Unfortunately I don't think I know anyone with a lathe. Do you think it might be a good idea to order one made to the right size? Or is there places where you can rent the equipment?

    Thanks again!

    If you are able to, you could become a member of a local Hackspace or Makerspace where you will find like minded people and tools to help out.

    Which wheels did you go for? I could make some and sell them to you for you to insert?

    Renting equipment wouldn't be suitable for a lathe, and even the smaller ones from machinemart etc wouldn't be up for the job, although could do it at a push.
