Thanks for the information. To make the rear of the Schneider 65mm lens fit into mine I have had to reduce the length of the inner helix and bore it out to 42mm. There's only just enough metal left to hold the helix together.

Also, I lost the slots which prevent it from turning hence my pin arrangement.

Yours looks neater than mine. Which lens did you use?

When I was looking for a suitable donor lens, the only one which looked like it would work.

Actually, my bigger Bronica ETRS lenses would have worked very well but I'm not sacrificing one of those!
