Sources for Tascam 52 reel tables?

This machine is rare enough that finding parts on Ebay is a real long-shot. And apparently 32 reel tables won't fit. But I have no idea which ones might be able to be substituted. So can anyone tell me which other Teac or Tascam machines have reel-tables which would be compatible with a Tascam 52?
R2Rs: Sony TC-880-2, TC-766-2, TC-765, Tascam 44OB, 52, Otari 5050 BII & BQII, Tandberg TD-20A & SE, 64X, Revox A/B77, A700, G36, MCI...
Cassettes: Tandberg 3014A, 440A, Nak CR7A, CR4A, BX300, 700, Revox B215s, B&O 9000, Kyocera D810, Pioneer CT-F900, BIC T-3...

Not to be obnoxious, but did you try Teac? They have all kinds of weird parts in stock.

As I remember the 30 series and 40 series reel table are similar but in the 50 series they seemed to go back to the types that were used on the X series decks. Not the star configuration but the newer ones. Call Vince at Audio Pros and see if he has any X series reel tables and I bet you will be on your way.
617-926-8020 is the number.

I'd be happy to check the tables on my 58 and compare it with the tables on my X-2000R - that is, if I can see them in the dark!

I have two for sale that I was going to try and convert to an older 'A' series machine, but in the eleventh hour decided I had better things to do. These were new from Teac central and never been used...

If you could post a few pictures (front back and side views) of what your are looking for, I can see if what I have will work.
