Anyone know of a K mount TO M42 adapter or hack?

Note this is about adapting a K mount LENS to an M42 body mount, not the other way around (there are several adapters for that).

I'm about to glue a salvaged female K mount ring taken from a camera onto a telescope male M42 to something (about 50mm) adapter, but since centering that is going to be a pain I'd see if anyone has other solutions. Maybe a way to hack up an old TC? or extension tube? other than rear lens caps that seems to be the extent of female K mounts.

It's going on the end of a bellows with a female M42 ring, BTW.
