I'm using a Kipon to Pentax K Mount, and use the 'standard' K mount to M42 adapter when needed, as I have both types. I guess there are m42 adapters for most types.

The Kipon is OK,  but the lens fit with the K lenses was a bit loose and a heavy lens would not necesarrily sit flush with the mount. So I striped it down (4 screws!) and tighened up the retaining bow springs behind the mount. Now it is fine.

If you buy cheap, you need to live with the conseqences!
