Thanks for reminding me about this, I knew someone had recently asked me something but I forgot where it was!
Anyway, you can get PEEK from McMaster Carr, or I got mine for about 1/2 the price from a local plastic supplier.
Awesome! Just what the Dr. ordered. I like this better than having to cut the brass down and threading the bowen in the same hole.
Could you share your PEEK source? I have 5/8" PTFE here, but if I am going to do it, I prefer to do it right!

I originally made mine from 3/4" diameter PEEK, but realized that 5/8" diameter PEEK should be fine, and is cheaper, so I redesigned it for that.
Its important that the M7 threads are AT LEAST 10.2mm deep. I show the hole as 11.2mm deep, but its safe to go deeper. The M6 threads that hold the nozzle on are plenty strong. I messed up the one on my machine so I've only got a few mm of M6 thread there, and its holding up just fine.
