The dimensions of the axle spacer for disc brake wheels are (source: Charley Cole):

Scott Grupe reports that you can easily make a replacement spacer out of commonly available black iron pipe commonly available at hardware stores. 1 inch OD pipe is the correct diameter and wall thickness and only needs to be cut to length. When I needed to craft a spacer, I purchased McMaster-Carr part number 1947K48 and had it cut to length. It fits perfectly and since it is stainless steel, it requires no painting or plating.
