Make them from plastic rod - Acetal or ABS. IMO shell is actually not that appropriate because it tends to facilitate the rusting of steel.

Sorry. Yes, I misunderstood.

It is standard practice for techs to make pivot rods, because they are too difficult to obtain, and even if they were kept in stock, the turnover would be close to zilch, suggesting that the price should be much higher than a customer would be happy paying.

Technicians keep many sizes of threading dies and many diameters of "drill" rod especially for making these.
