    This ring is the way I found in this forum.

    Thanks the one who shared the idea.

    I used such kind of rings to fix my Vitax behind the lens board without the original flange.

    Today, I found another ring which also could provide the function as above rings.

    Please share any idea for mounting the lens without the original flange if you have the idea.

    Measure the threads on the lens barrel/shutter, machine a new flange on a lathe.

    Because everyone has a lathe in their garage. Even in China.

    He asked for ideas. That's how I'd do it.

    Just what is your problem, anyway?

    What problem?

    In years gone by, yeah many people might've had a lathe, or knew someone who did, but heck, a lot of my folks my age these days don't even own a hammer and screwdrivers (which admittedly drives me nuts). It's kind of like suggesting to someone looking for camera to just build one. Obviously most people aren't going to have the tools, know-how, or inclination to do that, even if it was the "best" option.

    He asked for ideas. I posted my idea. Kindly keep your snide remarks to yourself.

    Cogratulations. You just made it back to my ignore list of one. Every time I take you off it, you act like a snotty, spoiled, passive-aggressive child, so back you go permanently.
