I have several PK mount-reverse adapters -- more than I really need. (No, I won't sell any!) I don't really need my 49mm and 55mm adapters. I could do just fine with a single 58mm adapter -- and a cheap set of step-up rings. With one each 49-52mm, 52-55mm, and 55-58mm step-ups, I can reverse lenses of all those diameters. The PK-reversal adapter should be well under US$10 and the step-up rings are usually under US$10 for a set that stretches 49-67mm or thereabouts.

Lots and lots of these available very cheaply on Ebay. Here's one for $5.38 shipped, but it would actually be slightly cheaper to get the 52mm adapter and a step ring for $5.06 combined, shipped. That would also give you more flexibility, if you have any 52mm threaded lenses you want to try reversing.

Picked that seller more or less at random, I'm waiting for a couple cheap items from them myself. There are tonnes of other options, just do a search, maybe you'll find them even cheaper.
