I've checked our inventory for the part you are requesting, B-213/75725. Unfortunately we have no inventory left on this part. As you probably already know this machine was obsoleted back in 1978, so finding NEW parts is going to be a difficult task. Your best bet may be to begin calling our list of authorized repair centers with the hopes that one would have so old parts left lying around. From there you may find a connection to a "scrap yard" of old threaders somehow. You can find our list of service centers at this link RIDGID ASC. Otherwise you may find a used machine on ebay or other sites of this sort. Hopefully you could purchase a cheap machine for salvage parts.
Good luck on your hunt. Sorry I couldn't be of more assistance!
the 444 4" machine was discontinued in the late '70's and replaced with the 850/852, these were subsequently replaced by the 1224 which is still available today, more than you ever wanted to know about the history of the 4" machine.....however unlikely you will find any parts for the 444. If you have a sheetmetal friend that could custom you up a chip tray that may be your only option.
