If you have a caliper you can measure the thread on the lens and verify it is a M42 or T-mount thread. Partial threading is usually due to having the right diameter but wrong thread pitch. Or the threads are messed up.

I have no such manly measuring tools and fear a tape measure will not be accurate enough  I'll fashion something to see if I can compare the threads, Many thanks.
