Faceplates for spindle with oddball thread?

wilbur
>I'm looking to get my first lathe, and I'm going to see a vintage lathe this weekend. The threading on the spindle on this lathe is 1" x 12 tpi. The lathe will come with some chucks and faceplates, but I'm looking into the event that I might have to replace or get a new chuck/faceplate. I know that chucks are available for this threading, but I haven't been able to find a source for faceplates that would fit this spindle. I've looked on the Packard, Craft USA, and Woodcraft websites so far.

How would I go about getting a new faceplate for this threading?
