Go to your local hardware shop and buy a length of brass bar stock in the diameter you need. Cut to length with a hack saw and file the ends smooth. If you need a 1/8" punch, keep the length short. 4" is plenty.

For many years, I've been using the hinge pin, taken out of a household interior door's brass hinge.

A new complete hinge, at Lowe's or Home Cheapo, shouldn't run more than $2-$3.

The only hinges that cheap are brass plated steel hinges.
