Steve; Online Metals or Metal Express will have 1018 or 12L14 hex stock in several sizes. You can also get it on Ebay. Try for a local supplier as the shipping tends to be more expensive than the metal.

The hex is 18" long and the 5/8" measurement is from flat to flat. I turned the handle end round to about .525" to fit the grip I had. I have a 9x20 metal lathe and you need to be able to insert the hex stock thru the headstock hole.
