male t-mount to Pentax K lens

Hello,

I'm looking for (preferably) a male t-mount (42mm x 0.75 thread pitch) on one side and a Pentax K mount for a lens (not camera) on the other side. I could also use a female t-mount if a male version isn't available. Would you have such a beast? This type of mount is for mounting a lens to a Vivitar Bellows System (stock no. 57-0352). See the photo at Vintage Vivitar Bellows and Slide Copy Attachment Sy (05/12/2013)... for the bellows system.

Hello,

I looked at some posts on line and the Vivitar Belows from images I've seen has male threads on the camera side. The page you link to says: "Adaptable to most any 35mm SLR cameras and lenses through compatible "T" mount adapters."

A standard "T mount adapter should work.

I did find and confirm with our store this adapter has male 42mm x 0.75 threads.

hello Chuck,

thanks very much for your response. the end of the bellows the CAMERA mounts to has a male t-mount and requires an adapter with a female t-mount on one side and a PK mount for a CAMERA on the other side. I have that adapter. What I'm looking for is the adapter for the other side of the bellows that the LENS mounts to. The t-mount on the LENS side of the bellows is female. The adapter for the LENS should have a male t-mount (although I could make a female work) and the other side of the adapter would need to have a PK mount for a LENS. Any idea if a LENS adapter like that is available?

Hello,

No sorry, it may have been a special ring made for the bellows.
