I got exactly that adapter from them and use it regularly on my minolta MD mount body. SRB film services (UK based) supply just about every adapter you could ever want. The only drawback is that if the M42 lens is automatic i.e. you cannot stop it down manually then you can only use it at full aperture.

I bought it some years ago but it was not that expensive I recall.

A.most every M42 lens I have ever had, has been both auto and manual, there has always been a switch on the lens barrel, real close to the aperture ring, to allow you to manually stop down if you wish, many of the old T-Mount M42(preset) did not have this switch though, and have a double aperture ring for the aperture control.
