Look hard in the online McMaster-Carr listing for various sizes ans shapes. *BW*
They are tricky to find in McMaster-Carr because they are called in that catalog "Tube Connecting Nuts", threaded tube inserts and variations on this bring up nothing.
These are used in bicycle frame building where they are called "star nuts". Type that into Google and you will get lots of suppliers for the bike market (this will also work in McMaster-Carr).
Other places that carry them:
Why aren't we calling the "star nuts"? We're astronomers for pete's sake! If we did we no one would have trouble finding them!

That is, if you find you pole too long, you can shorten it.
