Default Source for 15mm pivot cups

Does anyone know where to source decent pivot cups that are 15mm diameter? I am rebuilding some Swift plates and the ones I've sourced from two different suppliers in AU are all too small at around 13mm diameter (they are for either Riedel or Sure-Grip plates).

Get one of your locals to make some out of delrin. That's what I make mine out of.

I just did the rounds of a few suppliers and didn't turn up anything so far. I'll see if I can get some Delrin, or similar, in a 15mm rod and cut / shape it to size if all else fails.

Just had a look through my shed and the Swift plates have a 14.5mm pivot cup. It is the same one used for the Speedmate Mk2 plates.

Ahh. Well looking at the one picture I've just seen of a Speed Mate plate, those were the ugly things that were supporting my new red Kryptos. Yep, the one remaining pivot cup that could be salvaged from those plates is a perfect fit for the Swifts, but that cup is cracked at the base. Any ideas who might have any Speed Mate pivot cups? I've tried SkaterHQ and a few others in Sydney and around AU, but no luck, only the smaller ones that I already have.

Default Made a solution

I ended up making some. Purchased half a metre of reinforced fuel line from Super Cheap Auto (7.9mm inside diameter, 14.3mm outside). I cut some pieces about 15mm long then put a little blob of black silicone sealant on one end and formed it into the little 'peak'. After they dried, they went in snugly and, when the truck pivot went in, they expanded to a perfect fit.
