1/2" LH Modified Square Tap for ML100-512 Cross Slide Feed Nut

I've been quoted £322 (for 2) or £277 9for 3) plus carriage of £15 for the manufacture of a 1/2" LH Modified Square Tap for ML100-512 Cross Slide Feed Nut.
Does anybody want to purchase purchase one with me please to keep the cost down?

The drawing I found for ML100-512 showed the thread as 1/2" x 10TPI ACME thread so is there a reason not to use an off the shelf offering such as on ebay, both RH and LH are listed.

My copy of ML100/512 definitely calls up a modified square thread form which is what the feed screw looks like.
