Default Tama Superstar lug help

I'm trying to piece together a cherry wine superstar from around '85. All I have are the shells. I can't afford the original hardware I can find on ebay and was wondering if any aftermarket lugs that will fit toms & bass drum. The toms appear to be 1 17/32" (39mm) spacing and the bass lugs around 3 3/8? I'm a total amateur on this type of thing, and any insight would be much appreciated. Thanks!

1 17/32" is very close to 1 1/2".
I would start at Drumfactory and try to find 1 1/2" Center to Center hole space lugs.
File holes just a little bit to fit.
Perhaps they also have BD lugs at 3 3/8 C to C.

10 Superstar BD Lugs on Ebay $50.00

I am building a seriously abused '77 Imperialstar set right now. One of the BD lugs had broken pegs.A screw won't hold it on now. I went through my junk pile and found a 2000's Rockstar BD lug, and the hole pattern is the same. You can probably buy a whole Rockstar set on C/L for the cost of the vintage lugs and bolt them on.I'd even say most if not all Tama lugs are going to be the same hole spacing. I see mid-grade Tama sets used on C/L for very cheap money.
