Best I can suggest is an arbor blank and get it machined.
An example.

Last time I tried something like that I used a 4 jaw chuck to hold the round bar stock. Then I drilled using a drill chuck in the tail stock.
it only works if your piece is short enough to mount and spin..

Alt Idea #2.. You can get a 1" x 8 tpi MT2 reverse chucking mount and put the 4 jaw in the tail where length won't matter

I was making this piece for a RC monster truck mod.

its a drill pad centre. Over here Myford do them ( Genuine Myford MT2 Vee Drill Pad Direct from Myford-Stuff L | eBay )

or RDG ( Model Engineering and engineering tools online from RDG Tools Ltd Home Page (Engineering Tools) Tel 01422 885069 /884605 ) there's is 1MT but you can get them in 2MT or use a 1 to 2 MT adaptor sleeve.

Hope that helps , not sure of US tool stores ( SWMBO wouldn't let me explore again when on holiday in USA after my last foray on honeymoon - boy she sure has a long memory !)

Have you got a link to the part? I poked around Shars and must be looking in the wrong place.
