Pentax lenses on canon AE-1 mounter adapter suggestions??

Hi all!!

I'm currently in the process of restoring an old Canon AE-1. Only problem is that the only lenses I have fit my Pentax KX. Is there a lens mount adapter that can make these lenses fit the Canon AE-1?

If you'd like the specs of the lenses, I can send pictures. I'm not entirely sure of their exact specs (I'm a little bit of a newbie, sorry!!).

I found a thread discussing this here:
Pentax K to Canon FD - PentaxForums.com

Looks like it might be possible, but not something that's available.

Would probably be pretty cheap to get an old canon FD lens anyway. You can also use M42 lenses on FD, I think, via an adapter ring.

Here's one of the Nikon F to FD adapters - there are a few varieties of these out there still. You can see that making it shorter and changing to Pentax K mount would be pretty difficult but maybe not impossible.

Yeah, I have an M42 adapter for FD. Works pretty well.
