anyone make metric tube adapters?

For the life of me can not find anyone who makes metric tube adapters. I can find metric rod ends and jam nuts but not tube adapters. Does anyone know a source for them if anyone does indeed make them?

Ya, the standard tubing is much more available, and i figure if i have to get tube adapters machined anyways the tubing diameter doesnt matter if its standard or metric. I'd have to check again what i wanted to use use but 1.25"x.065" tubing with a 12 or 14mm thread.

Hmmm If you know someone with a lathe it may be easier to make your own.
I know metric is hard to find. I am in need of a 23mm adapter for fj 80 Tre's. Trail gear used to sell them, but it looks like they dont anymore.

Im in the same boat. I had all my other ones made in the machine shop at work but we dont have a metric tap in that size. Its not worth buying it for 1 adapter.
We have some killer machinery in there but its useless when we never have any time to do side work.
