Looking for shaft extension for T8

I've been following the Knife Grinders methods for sharpening, with a rock hard felt wheel that I obtained from Duro-Felt. It has worked very well on the grinding wheel side, but I don't have the shaft extension that Vadim used to ship with his felt wheels, so I can't mount it on the non-water-trough side. I haven't been able to find anywhere to order this part. Can anyone recommend a place to order from? Preferably in the US.

Image is from knifegrinders.com.au. I'd gladly buy it from them, but they are no longer selling them.

Mike,

You may already have a compatible part if you have the LA-120  Profiled Leather Honing Wheel. I believe the shaft from this will fit. I say "believe" because I do not presently have access to my shop. If you have the Profiled Leather Honing Wheel, you can easily check this.

Good idea, Ken! Thanks. I don't have one of those (yet?). I'd still prefer a way to buy one standalone, but it's nice to have this option if I can't track one down.

Tormek support pointed out that their authorized resellers carry replacement parts. This shaft for the LA-120 set is available by itself.

Here's a US link: https://www.sharpeningsupplies.com/Shaft-for-LA-120-Profiled-Leather-Honing-Wheels-P2085C370.aspx

At $25.50, this was the best option for me. Thanks Ken and HaioPaio.
