Oh ya, they are out there. The problem is that M12X1.25 to 1/8"npt is to close to the same size. They even make those adapters too....but they make the hole smaller so it won't fit a standard temp...

If you can get an M12x1.25 adapter that will fit a standardized 1/8" NPT temp sensor I'd be all over that. Or if you have an M12x1.25 temp sensor of some kind I'd take that as well. I found a Beck...
