Yes, 3/4” on flats, 7/8” on spur and it s off. Does look like a 1” x 8 tpi.

I’m confused (not something new). 3/4” on the flats on the spindle and 7/8” on the spur?
If the exterior of the spur is 7/8” then the spindle can’t be 1”.
One which I started with had a 3/4” X 16 tpi spindle.

Faceplate or chuck is up to you but a chuck is more versatile.
Faceplate probably about $20 or chuck about $100.
