Need source for Saeco Tru Speed powder hoppers

I have two Saeco Tru Speed powder measures that need powder hoppers. One is missing and the other is stripped. I have been holding the stripped one in place with tape for a couple of years. I don't like this design because the hopper tends to keep getting loose and eventually strips because of all the re-tightening and wear on the plastic threads. Any ideas for improvising?

Anyone have help on this? The Hopper is about 7 1/2 inches O.D. is 2.0 inches.

Oscar Orum,
I never did get any help on this subject. Had some suggestions about how to make a hopper, but nothing that was within my capabilities. I still use my Saeco, but the hopper is held in place with packaging tape wrapped around the base. Let me know if you find a source.

not a word. I am seeking reserviors and a rifle drum assembly. Can you help on this? There were two heights of the reserviors.

I have a SAECO Tru Speed powder measure also. It's a nice looking piece of classic equipment. I don't use it much since I have a Dillon press, but it would be nice to be able to use it for initial load development. I recently tried using it for a rifle cartridge and determined that it can't drop enough powder. After a bit of research, I learned that there is a rifle drum that was available for it. I have to doubt that I'll ever find one of those though.
