Options for bolt-on disc front hub?

Not sure if this is the right sub-forum but it seemed the most appropriate.

Anyways I'm looking for a bolt-on (non quick release) disc brake front hub. Trying to Google such a thing is proving difficult as the search engine is picking up all results related to bolting on the rotor. What options do I have for hubs?

I'm not sure of any actual bolt-on hubs but you can get skewers that bolt on instead of quick release. Would that be good enough?

This is not a thru-axle, correct? Just a regular 9mm QR axle?

I think finding a NON QR disc wheel may be very difficult.
Simply buy a solid axle & nuts and swap out the QR one.
A spendy one here-

Couple o questions. Why for one? Hub width, as said , not a through axle correct? You might be able to get a solid threaded axle to replace the existing qr. Need to be concerned with thread pitch, length and how those bolts would interface with the ends of the fork. Got pics?

If you can find a disc brake, conventional 9mm threaded steel , cup & cone front hub.

You can as I have done fit a non QR bolt thru the hollow axle skewer both hex socket cap screw or a unique tool security product..
like Pitlock
Or replace the hollow axle with a solid one that uses Nuts on the ends ..
