I think that must be what he meant... Looking at the measurements of the tapered ends
5.8mm or 0.228346" and the other end is 6.6mm or 0.259843"
The first one in the drop down list "od .298 x id .250 x 32.5 in Epoxy Tubing -$3.95" should work for a tight fit...

Then some plastic epoxy (or similar)
The shafts are tapered to make a snug fit and allow a place for the epoxy to bond without squeezing out.
The box at the end of the shaft is a support element to keep the shaft center. Just snip them off.
Cut rod to size, apply epoxy inside rod, insert ends, let set, enjoy!
I printed mine in ABS but because of the tapered shafts PLA should work just as well.
