Meaning, are all steam tips standard size ?

I want to buy this, but not sure if it fits the dream:

Unfortunately, the LaSpaziale steam arms are thread on the inside rather than on the outside. That means a tip for the S1 Dream needs to terminate with male threads. Unscrew your current tip and you will see what I mean. However, Chris Coffee and perhaps other suppliers do sell a male-male converter which would allow you to use this tip.

the closest thing I found on CC was this:

That is not it, right?

I think this is the right one but you might call CCS and tell them specifically what you are trying to do and see what they say. The 8mm end should fit on the Dream and I know that these tips fit on a LaMarzocco which is 10mm unless the thread pitch is wrong.
