What you have got is a 1.125" to 1.125" adaptor for threaded steerer to Aheadset type system
I use to fit these as a matter of course about 5 or 6 years ago to all my mates bikes and is a very easy way of converting from one steerer sustem to the latest.
What you want is a 1" to 1.125" converter- but this will still cause you a problem on height as it will just leave a short extension out of the top of the forks to take a standard ahead type stem. There is an extender you can then get to raise but you are probably talking arounfd £50 to £60 to get it sorted.
This is not a store I frequent very often but if you want the hard to get part, or something unusual- this is the place to get it. Goes for all those old obsolete parts that have not been made for 30 years aswell- for the Vintage bike owners on the forum.
My suggestion is that you look at the range of 1" quill stems this store has to offer, and go for the longest stem with the highest Angle that they stock. This will be cheaper than converting your existing stem.
If you do get stuck- See the attachment as this is the type of extender you should have got- 1" to 1,125" It ia an old one that I bought years ago, and has a sleeve so it will work on 1" and 1.125" steerers.
