K adapter for Miranda lens?

It is a Miranda 75-300mm zoom that I've had for many years. It currently has an Olympus mount. Can anyone tell me where I can source an adapter to fit it to the K-x. I realise it will need to be used manually on the K-x.

Search in the Impossible lens club. Many have converted OM mount to the K mount.

OM --> PK is trivial. Use a Dremel metal-cutting blade to taper the undersides of the OM bayonet flags. Cut a slot for the Pentax mount locking pin. I've documented this a couple times here. Search for OM and C/Y conversion. Easy-peasy.
