Thanks

The description of what you need leaves a lot to be desired. More specifics, please…...... Jerry (in Tucson)

I think that for something as specific as you need that you will have to go to a machine shop and have it made. Brace yourself for sticker shock.

Well guys here was a real mistake in figuring out what was needed. it has to be a inch and a half 1 1/2/ not two inches. sorry about that.
And Hairy, your right about the machine shop, the cost will be outrageous . thanks guys

Look for a lathe headstock, people occasionally part them out although the bigger sizes are much less common.

Put an ad on craigslist. Guys have machines shops in their basements and garages just like we have woodshops. They like to pick up a few $ when they can.
