I think it is a grommet, but maybe I am thinking of the wrong thing.

The name of the little wire protector thingy that goes into a cut hole, be it metal or wood. Keeps the wires from wearing on thesharp edges.

Anyway, I am looking for some that are for 1 3/8" round and 3/4" thick.

Any idea what they are called and where I can find them?

I'll bet you can find these at an auto parts store as well. Especially the larger sizes.

For larger holes, you can also use linear grommet strip around the edges
