Adaptor woes again

I have the FT focuser with a threaded drawtube (A-P type 2.7" threads).
Now I have to get an adaptor that goes from this to the A08-T.
Ashley at Precise PArts says the Ao8T thread is STL like.
But my Baader two inch nose piece screws into it ok (which I believe is M42 thread) (Screws into the Ao8T screw thread)
What should I order?
Thanks
Graham

adaptor woes

Now more confused, took the D block off the AO8-T which I assume is removing the M42 to reveal the STL thread and it fits ontomy scope threads -which are supposed to be Astro-Physics 2.7"?
Huh?"
They threaded off and on a few times and there was no binding or crunchy noises!!
