Source for post binders

I need some hardware so I can use a supply of old post binders for
our records/archives.  These binders are used to hold reduced
engineering drawings, and are useless without the metal posts.  The
binder boards are 21" x 13", and were actually made by the Prison
Industry Authority here in California around 30 years ago.  They
indicated that they no longer make anything like that, and they no
longer have any of the posts in stock.

Our office has, among other records, a lot of reduced engineering
drawings that we store in binders of two sorts: Accopress and these
old cloth binders.  I am the person nominally in charge of these

I am aware that this request may be a bit off-topic, but I thought
that someone on this list might know where I can get these things.
The posts I need are solid metal cylinders, with a narrower stud at
one end, and a threaded hole at the other end, and they screw into
holes in the binder ends.  I think these posts have not been made
for a long time: +30 years? I do have a supply of these posts, but
they are the wrong size for the binder covers we have: the studs are
too big for the holes in the binder covers.  I had thought that the
studs only cam in one size, but learned, to my dismay, that they do
