If remember right can find either 1” x 8 TPI or 3/4” x 16 TPI on that lathe if you are measuring the drive center at 7/8” of an inch have my doubts about spindle being 1” x 8 TPI. They were sold by many different companies.

Very iImportant for you to count the number of threads per inch using a sharp pencil and ruler to make sure what the thread count actually is before buing faceplates or chucks.

If having trouble figuring it out take lathe to a local Machine shop and ask if they can use their threads per inch gauge. You can also buy a gauge bu might only have a one time use.

If get it wrong will end up buying a spindle adapter to get accessories to fit.
