A while back I had a Jet 1442.Now I have a Jet 1642....I had some step centers made for it.I know the 1442 uses 1" by 8 thread...I was wanting to double check the threads but didnt have anything smaller than a 10tpi and it appeared to fit.Im sure these were for the 1442 but was just checking before I bought a spindle adapter for them.

Just to be clear,
You had some things for your old lathe, 1442, 1 x 8 spindle thread.
Now you want to use these things on your new lathe 1642, 1 1/4 x 8 spindle thread.
Is this correct?
If so, the adapter you linked to will work. I'm sure some will comment on run out and PSI quality but they are good for the money IMO (I've had one for years)

I have had several items from PSI over the years. Never had a run-out problem. I bought a spindle adaptor from Best Tools and it is excellent, but costs more.  To me it was worth the difference.  I like the surface finish and the heft of it.

One good thing about ordering the PSI from Amazon is that you can mount it and check the runout and then decide either to keep it or send it back. A sort of no risk situation.
