Yeah, nice job etc etc. But why replicate something that you can buy relatively inexpensively?

You need to be able to focus them. LF, enlarging lenses etc all need a mechanism such as a helicoid or bellows to focus (it's all do-able). The beauty of a fixed register lens, such as that used by the OP, is that it has a helicoid.
