Default 12x1.0mm threaded tube/pipe

I need to get ahold of some 12x1.0mm threaded tube/pipe to make a new manifold for my Saito 82. The stock manifold is about 3/4" - 1" too short and, due to clearance issues, the flex manifold Saito sells will gouge the heck out of the built up cowl trying to bend it so it can be secured to the fuselage. Saito doesn't offer any other options and I prefer not to get into buying 2 manifolds and then having them cut and welded/brazed (I want to keep the stock manifold intact ).

I have Googled for this and the only hits I have been able to find that APPEAR that they may actually have either of these items are German. I don't speak German and the translator isn't doing that good a job. The US/English speaking sites I could find do not have these items OR are saying 1/2" = 12mm [&o]

What I would like is any or all of these in steel, brass or aluminum alloy:

12x1.0mm nipples 3", 4" and 5" long

and/or

12x1.0mm all threaded tube/pipe

Any ideas on where to get these items ?

They did it. They are making me a custom length manifold for $40. I have been trying to get this taken care of for about 6 weeks now (I don't even want to try to calculate the number of hours I have spent on Google and checking out possible hits it provided. )

Thanks for the URL and information.
