Replacement chase bed for Kelsey 5x8?

Hi all--I'm very new to this medium, and a friend just gave me (!) a Kelsey 5x8 tabletop press that was sitting in her basement. It doesn't have a chase bed or a chase, and I was wondering if anyone has had any luck tracking down replacement chases. I know I can get a new one fabricated (there's someone over on Briar who makes them from wood), but I'd love to find an original if possible. Any leads would be great. Thanks so much! -NicoleSee More
