I've bought some old lenses a while back (all M42 lens mounted lenses). I've decided to try and convert them to work on a Nikon Dslr, infinity focus and all. I succeeded on my first lens (first pictures), by replacing te mounting mechanism with a 3D printed one, it works flawless. It's awesome!
However, I also have another lens, which I have high hopes for because it focusses beyond infinity when held up to my D3200. The problem is though, that I can't find a way for unmounting the mounting plate for replacement. I did try screwing off the side screws, it revealed a few philips head screws around the aperture ring, but I don't know if that's for the mounting plate or not... Anyone who has experience with the ones? Or is able to tell me if those screws are actually for the mounting plate?
Thanks in advance!
