Wouldn't mind an answer to this as well. I am rebuilding an older bike with a 1" fork.

I don't have experience with the expander, but all the other J&L products I have ordered have been good.
I ordered from this seller; fast shipping (to USA) and a very nice guy: J&L 1" expander.

There are a bunch of FSA on eBay, but I don't know the weight: FSA 1" expander.

Finally, this one by Ti Cycles looks very sturdy, but heavy at claimed 45g. The bolt could be replaced of course: Ti Cycles 1" expander.

A little something showed up today from China. I won't be installling until next week but will give some feedback. The expander does seem pretty well made.

I've installed mine...not too impressed so far, I had to really tighten mine to stop it spinning. I wouldn't be surprised if I see that sharp edge has marked or dug into my steerer either... :(

I bought a 1 1/8" J&L for my Colnago C59 and it was too large for the fork.
