Bolt. Need help

Could somebody tell me where I would go to get a replacement for this bolt (?) seen in the attached picture. It is 5' long, with 2" of 5/16" thread and, 3" of non- threaded shaft, two nuts. What is this part called?

I am refurbishing two, old gambling wheel and this is one of the pins that go around the wheel.

I can purchase replacement pins from casino supply companies but they are pretty expensive. I am going to need about 120 of these, ideally polished steel or even chrome.

Thanks

I doubt you'll find any direct replacement other than a casino supply. You might be able to duplicate them by cutting off an L-bolt or similar...but a lot of cost and labor.

You show a wheel with all the pins...why not just clean them up and have them re-plated or powder coated. If you skip the polishing (manual labor is expensive) then it shouldn't be too expensive.

It's called a one end threaded stud.

Update: I finally decided to try to refurbish these pins myself. I used a fine wire brush on my drill. Actually, they came out pretty darn good. I would like to put on some high-gloss lacquer or poly-coating on them. Any recommendations?
