Fitting 12mm TA non boost wheel hub into a 15mm-boost threaded TA boost fork

So I thought I was smart and bought a kit to convert my non boost wheel into boost spacing to fit on my Fargo boost fork. Problem is, I forgot my Fargo has a 15mm TA, where my wheels hub has a 12mm ID.. cant fit a 15mm THru Axle in that!

So is there a thread adaptor to convert the 15mm Receiving threads on the fork to a 12mm? Nominally a 1.5mm wall threaded bushing? Otherwise I’m going to just have to buy a boost hub and re-spoke it into my wheel which will cost more time and $
