You can make your own from a piece of 1/4" plywood and a block between your lathe bed ways.

Lin, do you have pictures? A drawing? This is something I would be interested in.
Thanks!

OK here are some quick and easy ways to make this indexing jig.
The 1st is one I made for my Nova and then had to build up the base to fit my Vicmarc.

Then came this one that had some specific range of holes I wanted. The top block attaches to the top of the head stock for the pin.

Making an index wheel for your lathe not hard. Here is an excellent article:

If want to mark off circle in degrees can print one out and glue to wood or plastic.

Have no experience with PSI index attachment, but wonder how spindle locks without a nut to hold index wheel. Looks like have to install your four-jaw, collect chuck, or pick up a nut for spindle.
