PARTS NEEDED: RARE ANTIQUE AMERICAN WATCH TOOL CO. 5.4mm WATCHMAKER'S LATHE - NASHUA No. 1 ?

A very rare model, which I think might be referred to as a Nashua #1 but it seems to be 5.4mm as opposed to 4.5mm
Unfortunately, it is not complete.
I have the headstock, missing it's pulley, index pin and lock down mechanism.
The headstock spindle & cone bearings look to be in great shape and turns very smoothly though it is missing the adjusting nut.
The drawbar is just under 3 inches or about 75mm with an outside diameter of 5.3mm and the inside reads about 3.8mm
The collet end of the spindle reads about 5.4mm on my micrometer
The bed is just under 8 at about 7 15/16 inches long or 201mm. It is about 33mm in diameter or 1.299 inches.
The foot or pedestal is only about 2 1/4 inches high.
Anyone else have one of these or any of the missing parts?

I think I have one of those. It is marked the same as yours and on the headstock the markings are the same. Mine is No. 3838. I have one collet and the body of it measures 4.96mm. As you can see in the picture it looks like yours.
