    Hello. Where can I find M42 mount plate?

    Hello, I'm newbie here.

    I am going to change some exakta mount lens to M42 mount.
    I can get several exakta mount lenses but where can I get m42 mount plates?
    I have some m42 lenses but I want m42 mount itself for parts.
    Anyone know some ebay sellers who is prividing it?

    Thanks.

    There is a company in UK called SRB-Griturn who will make almost any mount you care to name. They have recently moved so can't give an address but just google the name and you will find them

    Cruise the bay. Search for m42 lens as-is, broken or for parts. Actually there may be some working for only a couple of $$.

    Make sure you check infinity focus. Simply swapping the Exakta mount for M42 might not be enough. I'm not sure if the lens mount to film plane register distance is the same for the Exakta and M42.
