comment Will an ACS 13T X 3/32 Crossfire freewheel fit an All-City Standard 130mm Hub?
Adventure Components (AC, not ACS) makes (or made?) a 15t freewheel that threads onto a standard 1.37" x 24 hub. I use it on my folding bike with 20" wheels. The bearing design means it has a fair amount of slop, but it is pretty cheap.

Added additional explanation of TIG-welded lugs and their use in the industry.

ANT bikes TIG-welds custom lugs for their framebuilding class. Even a non-bicycle TIG welder should be able to make an effective steel lug to your specification, if that's what you're looking for. Suggesting that the OP browse through lists of lugs they've likely been through seems like less of an answer yet.

The Henry James 2012 price list shows only lugs in the 73-74 degree HTA range. Kirk Frameworks claims the ability to modify a lug up to about 2.5 degrees, which wouldn't get to the slack geometry of a Raleigh Tourist.

comment Where can I buy lugs for a classic roadster frame geometry?
Reviewing the lugs available at ceeway.com, I couldn't find any that weren't designed for a 71-74 degree HTA/STA, which is not what the OP was asking for. The question was not generically "where can I buy bicycle lugs".

I can reword it, but I'm trying to state that you probably can't "buy" such lugs, though you could possibly have them made. If you've got a suggestion that makes that clearer I'm happy to hear it.

Not a direct answer to your question, but instead of using a freewheel hub, you could use a cassette hub and simply run the chain around a single 11t sprocket. You'd have to adjust for chainline in the front.

comment Why aren't Tour de France riders going any faster?
You might want to find a copy of Bicycle Quarterly vol. 8 no. 4 where an interesting analysis is done of bicycle race speeds compared with foot racing; there is a high correlation and some of the performance increases are due purely to improved training and simply better athletes in the competition. One surprising result: even introducing the derailleur didn't make a massive spike in performance.

They don't really appear to have anything suitable.

For those missing more context, it looks like @hhh has a Genetic chain tensioner, which is a semi- (total?) clone of the On-One chaintug.

Also note that we don't really go shopping on Bicycles.SE. So hopefully compatibility advice is helpful enough.
