‘Ideal #3’ tabletop letterpress

Hi, I just obtained an Ideal #3, manufactured by John Sigwalt. The model was last manufactured in 1964, but it appears to me that this press is a bit older than that. (It began production in 1900.) It is missing its chase, and rollers, but is otherwise in good working order. I’m making a chase, but would prefer using the real thing. Same with the rollers. Any leads toward finding a chase and rollers would be appreciated. Thank you. Terry.
