Martin - you know I do much with my junk anymore, and you can come over anytime. I have faced your dilemma before with that situation, and you could jam nut it on each side with either a nylon or rubber bushing, or an aluminum one in galvonic corrosion isn't an issue.

a near-death experience is just god following "catch and release" regulations...

If you're looking for solid rod versus heavy wall tube, you're going to need a really thick piece to have enough meat left on either side of a 5/8" hole. You're talking 1-1/8 to 1-1/2 inch thick dowel. I think I have a piece of the large solid stock left that I made my spare tire carrier pivot on my bumper out of. Let me know if you can't find anything else.

I don't think you will find that "off the shelf". I work in the woodworking industry and all that I've seen are much shorter (like and inch or so) and smaller in overall diameter (such as for 1/4 to 3/8 threaded rod). I think you will be making it from scratch.
