Hi Jim .. I also have a 3A Singer Gazelle and will be adding disc brakes over the next few months time permitting .. I have had a set of Sunbeam Rapier disc brake set up given to me and was told that they will bolt straight onto the Gazelle .. another option is if you can locate a Hillman Gazelle wreck, then swap the disc brakes over .. good luck .
