arbor bushing

I'm hoping someone can help me find a source of bushings to reduce 5/8" arbor saw blades down to 1/2". I'm told they exist, but haven't been able to find any evidence of them.
Any good online catalogs out there?

Don't the saw blade manufacturers have them?

Wouldn't the bushing need to be as thin, or slightly less, as the saw blade? Make your own with a half dollar coin or an old saw blade. Would a slice of 1/2" galvanized pipe work?

Not online but at Harbor Freight....as much as I hate to reccomend it.
My neighbor bought himself a set of tool arbor bushings at HF, he knows I hate the the place & the crap they sell.
He bought me a set of bushings as well.

I have the same problem. An old Craftsman/King Seeley 8 1/4 inch table saw with half inch arbor. I got it cheap at a garage sale, I suspect the previous owner thought the saw was defective as he had a 5/8 hole blade on it with no bushing - the vibration was awesome.
I found bronze sleeve bearings at the local Ace hardware with 1/2 inside and 5/8 outside diameter. Made an arbor out of a carriage bolt and couple of washers which holds the sleeve in my drill press. Then I hold a hacksaw to the spinning sleeve bearing and slice off eighth inch bushings. I've used up three of the bronze bearings, made at least a dozen bushings. Bushed up an entire Freud Dado set this way.
