Wheel with 1' square shaft; useless?

Ok, so I got all excited because I found a great deal on a 36" classic wheel. I didn't consider that that shaft opening, rather that being round and keyed, is 1 1/16" SQUARE. Any idea what manufacturer used a square steering shaft (where it attaches to the pedestal). Edson's are all round. Does anybody know of an adaptor or something?

Hoping I didn't just toss my money away...

thanks in advance!
