Looking for faceplates *PIC*

Brian Hahn in SW Wisconsin
>I'm preparing to switch from my Conover lathe to the Robust lathe. Faceplates are still on my to-do list. The Conover faceplate has a lip around the outside (see picture below). That lip is such an outstanding advantage that I'm not willing to give it up.

My question is, does anyone still sell faceplates with a lip around the edge?

The closest thing I've found is a screw center faceplate at Craft Supplies USA. I'd have to remove the screw, plus it is a little expensive for my application. My other options are to buy adapter for my Conover faceplates ($60 each) or to buy standard faceplates and modify them.
