Where can I buy a solid graphite stick about 1/8” diameter? I need just a small pieces to fix my broken rod.

tubular glass is better for that.  I think a solid graphite piece would concentrate the stresses so much at its ends that the repair will fail.  Find a piece of a tubular glass rod (graphite will work, but is a little more risky, but it has to be tubular so it forms an external sleeve, not an internal spigot.) to use.  Very good article below.

That’s right. Solid anything is the wrong material for a fix.
