Happy New year!
Drop me a private message and I’ll send you some information that others in the forum have helped me out with in making my own adapter.

Looking (unsuccesfully) for a source of D1-3 cams I stumbled upon this thread.
I have been making myself a D1-4 adaptor for my milling machine. I had extra castings made. Due to messing up I have:
1) A D1-3 adaptor that was a fallback when I machined a D1-4 too small. This should be all ready to go, except that it has no cams:
The raw casting was £36 from AJD and I have a few hours of work in it, so I would be hoping to get £75 plus postage for it.
2) A mirror-image D1-4 adaptor. This is what you get when you machine the radial holes 90 degrees out. This probably means that it won't even work with the pins reversed, as the angle between the holes should be 15.6 degrees but is in fact. 14.4 degrees. But you could still hold a chuck down with toe-clamps, and use it simply as a support and/or positioning device.
This can be had free for the price of postage.

A long time ago (10 years or so), JFK Precision in US listed all the fiddly bits for D-series spindles.

Gate and XYZ list D1-4 in the UK. D1-3 seems rarer.
