I don't think you will. The aspect ratio makes it a nonsense. A 1 1/4 inch
thread in wood is not capable of using the strength of a 10 gauge, let alone
a 14 gauge screw. I have only seen them used on lengths longer than 4".
Why on earth do you need it? Is it to replace a very old screw, or do you
want a large head diameter?. If the latter than use brass cups on a smaller
gauge screw, or recessed cups if you need a flush finish.
FWIW Nettlefolds did make screws in the size 1 1/4" x 14, I know this
for a fact because I have a box of 144 made by them I also have
Nettlefolds screws in 1 1/2" x 14, 1 3/4" x14, 2" x 14 and 2 1/4" x
I got them from a factory at Kingham (Oxon) when they closed about 10
years ago they used them in the assembly of farm elevators, the screws
are quite old as they stopped making elevators 50 years ago!
interestingly the screws are still in brand new condition.
I want them for restoration of a chapel door. They are for fixing the
fancy cast-iron false hinge plates. There a lots of similar situations
where odd screw sizes are needed inspite of earlier comments - mainly
restoration work on period joinery/furniture/boats/carriages etc etc.
I think I've found some 14 x 1 1\2 brass, so these will do if I can't
get the right ones.

If your screws are going into pre-existing holes, you could get longer
14 ga screws and saw the ends off. Dont use cutters, use a saw, then
file. Very slow but for one off restorations its quite tolerable.
