It should be replaced in a bot.

Use your fingers - I assume that you've figured-out how they work?
We need some more information to even try to answer this question.
What is the rod made of? Is it solid?
Is the "one inch" diameter or length? What's its other dimension?
Does it need to move? (Is it an axle or a spindle of a lever, or just a brace.)
What do you need it to attach to it? (Motor? Wheel? Microphone? I-beam?)
Without at least some description of what it is and what it needs to do the answer could be anything from a hunk of wood to epoxy to magnets.
v clamp, hose clamp, box clamp.
Okay I'll take the bait. What's an "inch rod".
I know inch worm, linch pin, nine inch nails, 10 league boots, 20 thousand leagues under the sea, land of a thousand dances but no "inch rod".
