Ronnie, try a local neon sign shop and ask for a feed-thru bushing w/nuts.  It is made from a HV proof plastic, is threaded on the outside and has a 3/8" hole in the middle.  OD is 1/2"
Don, I use a piece of rag around the part I don't want to scratch and it works pretty well.

 Men I need a couple if 3/8" nylon shoulder washers. Must
 pass a 3/8" bolt, or in this case the threaded shaft in a
 variable capacitor that must remain above ground!
 No local stores in my area carry them and I do t need a box
 of 100 of them!
 Anyone have a few of these I can purchase?

 That safety wire thread reminded me. Does anyone know of a
 source of plastic
 jawed vice grips? Something you could use to grip something
 without scarring
 up or ruining the surface?
 
 I notice that Sears has plastic jawed channel locks and
 other varieties of
 pliers, but I'm looking for something more specifically like
 Vice Grips that
 could be used to lock down on a metallic object  and
 hold it in place,
 without gouging or destroying the plated surface.

 I don't think I've seen plastic jaw Vice grips, but there
 are plastic inserts for bench vices. Some have magnets built
 in to help hold them in place.

 Would it be possible to fabricate something that would work
 from two 
 fingers of a set of rubber gloves?
 
 Try using them first on a scrap of whatever in case that
 doesn't work.
