How to attach the servo push rods to control surfaces (wings, rudders)?

I am brand new at scratch building and am trying to find where to buy or how to build those do-dads that attach the push rods to the control surfaces. I see them in the build videos but there is no place to buy them referenced or no plans on how to make your own. Any help is much appreciated.

I think you're talking about control horns. We use all sorts of materials. Old credit card/gift cards work well. Light hobby plywood is good too. I've used those combination tooth pick flossers. Cut a certain way they work great.

I found this video and started collecting used up gift cards:
