I'm building a boat and I would like to build a traditional spoke wheel.

Problem is, I don't know where to find the brass center hub to fit the standard 3/4 tapered shaft (Teleflex system).

Any ideas where I could get one?

Edson marine has a selection of trad wheel hubs.
I suspect they're of gold.

Yes, made of gold. I think they are dreaming.

I am only after a brass tappered sleeve really.

most tapers are standard such as a morse tapir used on drill presses and machine tools

if you knew which one it is you could get one made cheaper than those
