Use the 135. To start, extend the lens 270mm, and place the lens 270mm from the subject. some fine focusing will give you an image very close to life size. if you need a larger image, extend the bellows further as you move the lens closer to the object.
If an object is to be recorded smaller than the subject, the lens to subject distance is greater than the lens to film distance. If the image is to be larger than the subject, the lens to film distance is greater than the lens to subject distance.
