Help finding thread adapter for older Rockwell

Wayne Leach
>Hi Everyone,
I have an older Rockwell lathe which has uncommon thread on headstock shaft 7/8Dia. x 14TPI I would like to get an adapter to convert to 1"dia. x 8 TPI so that I may purchase chucks etc. Any ideas where to purchase (I have looked at the usual places like Craft Supplies, Rockler etc. with no luck)! Will I have to get it specialy made???
Any ideas or suggestions would be appreciated.
