If you measure the diameter of the spindle thread that would be a good place to start. Also measure the distance between the peak of one thread and the peak of the next one to work out the pitch. Sometimes it's easier to measure across a number of threads and work it out from there.

If the spindle and tailstock have a morse taper, it would be MT2 if the hole at the end is around 3/4" and a MT1 if it was around 1/2".

Tool King is not the name of your lathe, it's the name of the tool Company I assume that sold it in the past. It is an Australian company in Kelso New South Wales.

These are their details from the internet.
