Vega Lathe Face Plates

I recently purchased a Vege 1553. The lathe after talking to Vega is about 20 years old.
The problem is I am having a hard time finding face plates for it. Why because the spindle is 1 1/4 by 12TPI rh not standard by todays market. The outbd side is the same except it has LH threads.
Looking for some help on locateing some face plates. The lathe was sold to schools and some production shops. If anyone has some for sale or knows of them you can email me at [email protected].

I looked in all my catalogs and no luck. Vic will make you one at but I don't know how much custom faceplates cost.
