Find a lens reverse adapter for PK mount, also known as Pentax bayonet mount. There is no electrical & auto focus involved so most, if not all, adapters are good and cheap. Just go to FleaBay and do a search for "pentax reverse adapter ring."

The size of the adapter (most of them are either 49mm, 52mm, 55mm, or 58mm) should be the same size as the filter thread diameter of the lens you intend to use. You can use any lens, not necessarily Pentax. It's best if the lens has an aperture ring so you can set whatever aperture you'd like. If the lens does not have an aperture ring, you'll take photo either at the smallest or at the largest aperture.

I found an old original screw mount reversing ring to use with my old Takumar lenses. It was only $10 on Ebay. It's very usable if you have a screw mount adapter already.
