ceiling fan pull chains

I am interested in turning some wood pull chain knobs for ceiling fans.

I am looking for a brass kit that you can use to attach the chain to
the turned knob.

As anyone seen these on any wood turner supplies websites?

I made a bunch of fan pulls a few years ago. I just drilled a small hole all the way through and then a flipped it over and drilled a slightly larger hole part way up. You can buy the chain at most craft stores or lighting shops, hardware stores, etc. They sell the chain by the foot and also the little couplers and bell shaped ends that keep the chain from pulling through. Here's also a link to Craft Supply if you are looking for something fancier.
