M42 adapter ring that works ok

Hi all

I bought an m42 adapter ring off ebay and it worked great. A cheapish one I took the screw off to 'convert' the lens permanently (i.e. just the friction keeping the lens in, fine for certain size lenses, e.g. my helios 58mm)

I thought great, wanted to order more. The seller was no longer on eBay, so I bought some others – they sucked, don't fit on right, have to be forced etc. Seem frankly dangerous to the camera and lens.

Can you recommend me some that work well?

My intention is to get a few I can take off the lever thingy and leave the adapter on all the time.

I have a proper Pentax adapter which I will keep and don't want to sactrifice by taking off the screw on metal lip thing, but want something economical but that works (i.e. it's not cheap if it doesn't actually work) for lenses I would like to have use of more conveniently.

Thanks for any suggestions, preferably with link to where I can get them.

Thanks all
