I'll answer that. He's a good buddy, but I believe he is also bipolar. He can be stubborn and has no sense of the value of money. He cannot be made to understand that the 3/32 ring of separation around the perimeter is of no consequence. To try to tell him makes him even more obstinate. To him the lens is already dead and he knows how much I have learned about these kinds of things from you people. Don't try to figure the logic.
