Help finding special brake line ferrule

I'm building a nice RecordAce frame and have run into an issue with the top tube brake cable braze-ons. They seem to be cable guides but are too narrow for the cable housing. I've built a couple bikes with something similar on the chain stay just in front of the rear derailleur. In that case I've used a ferrule that fits the derailleur housing but narrows on the other end to fit the braze-on. They were spares from some DA bar end shifter kits. I need something similar for brake housing.

I hope someone can tell me the correct terminology or a source for such a part.

photo?
I just came across some plastic ones that step down from regular ferrule-size to just big enough to pass the cable through.

Ok, I eventually found something at JensonUSA but will probably stop by the LBS to save on shipping. A long long search of my stash turned up two Jagwire plastic ferrules that will work but look out of place. I did find a single shiny metal ferrule that works perfectly in some bag of a half dozen ferrules. Perhaps the LBS will have a matching one.
This build has had some setbacks. The pass through brake lever (non aero) adjuster isn't drilled for the cable and one spoke is broken on the rear wheel.

I've got a couple of those ferrules that the housing fits into, and then has a "nose" about 1/2 the diameter.. Would those help?

It's called a “step-down” ferrule. The ones I know have a “nose” that's 4 mm dia.

Yup.

I've only ever seen them for the RD cable. I have a bagful of those.... if you want some, shoot me a PM.
