Default Pentax K-mount bellows on Nikon D40

I'd like to attach a Pentax K-mount bellows on a Nikon D40 camera and use Pentax lenses for macro. Do you know of any adapter to do this?

I already have the bellows, extension tubes and reverse adapter, all Pentax K-mount, that I used to do macro on film, but I'm interested in the bellows for now. I'd like to use it with my Nikon.

Thank you

Thanks for the tip.
It sounds like it's the only way to go.
