Assistance Required: Lens disassembly database

Hi all I am putting together an article (more of a database) for lens repair guides.

The thread is here:
https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/maintenance-repair-articles/179884-pentax...ml#post1878155

If you have any guides please post a link in the comments to the article so we can get a decent resource going here.

Thanks for your contributions

Cool. I've taken quite a few lenses apart. The one thing that I need to find on-line is the cement/glue that is used to either hold screws in place or to hold diaphrams in place. Maybe as part of the database, we can get some links to materials and tools too.

I know of something called "loctite" which here in aus is sworn on by many. Its also has a more general name of "thread locker" see here for a bit more info :Thread-locking fluid - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
