star nut sizing

I'm having trouble getting the correct size star nut for my new fork. All the star nuts I look at seem to be sized to the O.D. of the steerer tube, but the I.D. of the fork tubes varies.
The I.D. of my old tube measures .975". The I.D. of my new tube measures 1.004". I ordered a new nut but it is too small. I scavenged the nut from my old fork but it is too small. All the nuts I look at online are sized to the O.D. of the tube.

I need a star nut that is a bit bigger than 1 inch in its uncompressed state. How do I get one that size? I found one place that tells you the actual O.D. of the nut but they are in England.
Thanks
