Advice on T2 adapters and lenses?

Some interesting old MF lenses use the T2 mount which is - AFAIK - like an M42 but with a 0.75 mm pitch and not 1 mm. I know there are T2 adapters available. Is there some issues in using T2 adapters, like losing the ability to focus to eternity or something else? Any particular adapter to get or to avoid? And is a T2 adapter used the same way as an M42 - adapter first on body and after that the lens?

Many thanks once again from yours truly.

P.S. I _did_ try to search but the quick one brought nothing obviously related.

I have not run into any problem.

I just bought the generic ones from FleaBay. They work fine.

I attached the T2 adapter to the lens. The lens thus becomes a PK-mount lens (with "preset" aperture of course). Each lens has its own adapter.
