Bearing Buddy grease nipples/zerks

Searching for a small quantity of these. They have a longer shank than the stuff found in local autofactors - it's almost 10mm deep and allows the nipple to take a nut behind the plate it fits to. Indespension in Belfast don't supply them. Any ideas?

I've exercised EXTREME care in my choice of search strings. I've also alerted Mrs willk, just in case the Google Ads take a turn for the worse

Given the huge amount of slack I've been cutting you lately, I don't suppose there's the slightest chance you might p1ss off and do a useful spot of nip-hunting for me, is there?

Cheers. I seem to be getting stuck at this point - I have no idea what thread type or M size this thing is - is there a "formula" or way to check that doesn't involve me having a clue?

Thread size is a red herring I guess, as I can get a nut to match, maybe...
