When I attempted to make one of these I heated the metal ends of a fuse then I was able to take it off with a pair of pliers.

yeah, I did this once, that's an excellent source for round glass, I thought this was for a large VDG. For nylon search for standoffs or rollers at places like Radio Shack and Lowes or Home Depot

I think those are injection molded plastic, and probably don't have the insulating properties. But there may be other kinds I'm not aware of....

. Try some of the industrial supply stores - eg, Carlton-Bates, McMaster-Carr.

if you can't find nylon use glass, cut a wine bottle. hmmm... are some cutting boards made of nylon? But that's flat.
