Why not just leave the skewers in the wheels?

Obvious question #2. Since you have the wheels and skewers, why not measure them yourself?

as i dont have any measuring calipers and need it exactly spot on? any more ?
1. I doubt it needs to be "spot on." The truing stand will adjust for minor differences, as it does for front vs rear axles.

2. That the whole thing to the machinist and let them worry about it. If I was making it I would not guaranty fit without having the wheels.

3. I would just find a wooden dowel or metal rod/tube of the right diameter and cut it to length. Hobby shop have brass tubing in a wide range of diameters. Does not need to be fancy.

Personally I would probably just stick a pencil through the hub and call it good.
