Yup, on a lathe is the easiest. Turn a blank to 2.5” and then slice off pieces on the band saw. For the HDPE, I just melt some in a slightly oversized metal can and then throw it on the lathe to turn to final diameter. I originally used wood, but it is a bit flimsy. The HDPE is pretty stiff stuff and works much better (those shown are actually from fabric softner jugs, not milk jugs :). If you don’t have a lathe, I guess you could always get some 2.5 inch wood dowel and do the same.
