NAB Hub Adapters for Otari MX-55

Hi guys. I'm in England and have just purchased a lovely Otari MX-55T machine. Unfortunately, the machine is missing its Otari NAB adapters and the 'casefoot' from the bottom of the casing.

You guys are about as knowledgeable and resourceful as it comes, so can you think of anywhere (other than direct from Otari - I've tried and failed) that might be able to supply the missing components? Cheers to all!

Look at the Teac tz-612 or tz-613 (color difference black/charcoal respectively) they are still available new. As for the foot there are folks making them from wood. Unless you just must have OEM parts,,,,

Feet come up on ebay every so often. Does your MX55T have the pull and twist ends on the spindles? If so then any "center plate" adapter will work. For the solid spindle decks the Otari KW0HOO9 or the older (smaller)TW-670, as well as VIF, clamping NAB adapters are needed. ___

I buy the Teac ones from Thomann and they work excellent on my 55N
