Pentacon Six Lens to OCT-18 Mount Adapter
Here are a few pictures of a Pentacon Six to OCT-18 adapter - made for the 3 Turret Russian 35mm Konvas 1M Motion Picture Movie Camera:

Note that the screwdriver is only shown for size comparison and is not needed to remove the mount.

Below is the Pentacon Six Lens and the
OCT18 Adapter. Notice that inside there is a 1.33:1 rectangular box. This is called an optical baffle
, which keeps excess light from bouncing around inside the adapter and accidentally over-exposing the negative.

This picture below was supplied by Terry Byrne. It's of a Pentacon Six to OCT-19 adapter, and made for use with the 35mm Konvas 2M and Kinor 35H. Notice the design is basically the same as the above photos (albeit it was built for an OCT-19 mount vs the OCT-18 mount above), with only minor differences in the construction.
