Question Starter upgrade

Does anyone know of a company who offers for sale an upgrade larger than standard size cup and rubber inset for electric starters with a 1/4 inch shaft? I'm trying to use it on a gas engine with an 1 1/2" hub. The standard size is just too small for 18 volts. I know I have seen one for sale in the past.

For my homemade gear starter I used a 3" hole saw ground the teeth off and use the 3 inch from miller in the link Brian posted above.

I also have a homemade two inch cup that slips over a standard one inch cup with the insert removed and secured with a couple of set screws. Not sure where I got the two inch insert though, may have been on a buy out or horse trading.
