Well, I guess memory is playing tricks on me again. I remember looking very long and hard to find an R8 to Nova native thread adapter, but was frustrated that the closest I could come was R8 to 1×8 tpi. Now I cannot find it again. I can find R8 to other common thread, but not 1”!!! I decided that since (at the time) I had access to a CNC machine that could make the required R8 with male thread to fit Nova native I would go that route. So I was very lucky.

Most machine shops now have CNC capability and likely already have the program for R8 specs. It’s trivial to add a 1×8 TPI stub to that program, so they can be very cost competitive. It’s worth getting a quote from a shop you trust.

Thank you for your patience with my bad memory. Age is catching up to me. i’ll keep looking.

I’ve never made one before, but now I have the capability to do it manually. There has to be a centering cone somewhere and I don’t have any specifications for that.
