Default XLR connectors for the ends of microphones?

Does anyone know how I can fit an XLR connector into the end of a homemade microphone? Switchcraft makes one that fits handily into the end of a 1" pipe, but it costs a less-than-reasonable $11.
I WANT TO BUY SOME W22EX001s. PM me if you have some for sale!

You can probably just take a chassis mount socket, cut the mounting plate off of it with a hacksaw, and epoxy it in place.

Personally, since even a chassis mount socket is $2-3, I would never do it because my spare time is worth a lot more than $8 to me.

XLR's come in both male and female. No need to cut up a socket. Just get the correct end to mount in your body. I did it once with a force fit inside some rubber hose into the back of an al. tube.
