Does anyone know where I can find a crutch with a diameter of 3.5 mm?

Most crutches I have seen vary in diameter according to make (but typically about 3.5 to 5mm) and some are plain and some threaded. What make of instrument is it for?
Dawkes (Windcraft) based in Maidenhead list crutches for some makes of bassoon or Howarths in London have a large double reed department and may be able to help.
Both have websites you could check.

Thanks for the tips. It is for an older Mollenhauer & Söhne / Cassel that I recently acquired. Most of the crutches that I have seen on the market have stems of either 4.7 mm (3/16") or 4 mm (5/32").
