What size is the hole in the link a lot are 1/4  so you can get a 1/4 stainless steel standoff ( you may have seen these in old radios)  then you will need the screw to fit the oscillator wheel . cut the standoff to the length  for your link then put the screw through it and cut it so that it tightens the stand off  but short enough that you dont jam the oscillator wheel. if you cant find stainless steel regular steel will work .

Thanks, Mike Rathberger posted a link to that thread earlier in the thread, I just need to take a look and see if my local Ace Hardware has any threaded standoff available at the correct diameter and thread pitch.
