Hi, round or flat stanchion desired might help. 4mm top hole is quite big, possibly bordering simple brass split pin size and soldering up.  How many do you need and what's it for please?  More details will help in your quest.

sounds like a plan, as for what they are for, its for the front railing, im a bit apprehensive about trying to make one and solder the uprights as i can see it going completely pear shaped

A simple and cheap option for single rail guardrails is to insert split pins into thin brass tube.
