homemade pedestal base

i have been introduced to a new manufacturing technique, using resin based concrete. we use it for counter tops, vanities with cast sinks, etc...

 

the first thing that i thought of was using the material for a fly vice pedestal. i'll be able to cast hook and bead cups into it, as well as tossing a handful of polished pebbles from my favourite river into the top surface.

 

the only problem that i'm having, is finding the metal part that the vice stem slides into for locking (thumb screw).

 

any thoughts onto where i could find this part, or a good substitute?
