You will have to make a cap on the end of the stylet rod. Which is a simple knob that has a screw to tighten it onto the steel rod. Hardware stores sometimes have these things.
I am sure there are companies near you that can make the rods for you. I took the dermal needle and punched a paraffin core out of a block and had it measured. A company in the city where I live manufactured the rod to match the size of the paraffin core. So I didn't have to send away for the stylet rods. Which is what I recommend you do. It may cost a little more but at least you wouldn't have to do the work yourself.
I hope this helps you. Holler if you need anything else.
