Some call it the arm pit of NYC.
They are milled to a required specification. The M42 lenses were designed for a particular flange distance which is considerably longer than the M-mount lenses which were designed with a short flange distance as they were designed for rangefinders.

Conversely, it would be difficult to create an adapter for M-mount lenses to be mounted on SLRs because it isn't possible to obtain the short flange distance with the mirror box design.
