'Access 35-70 f2.5-3.5 Macro' Manufacturer

So, I have final braved it up and cut the aperture guard in order to allow the Access to mount on m K-5. While doing so, I may or may not of transferred some metal filings into either the zoom or aperture mechanism which I'd like to remove before using the lens heavily. So, I was hoping that someone would either know the manufacture or have a repair guide handy so that I know what to expect while "repairing" the lens. Serial Number 8201XXXX. Warmest regards in advance, Joshua!

Soligor had an identical lens, but they didn't actually make anything either. I've seen it sold under the Tefnon name, which is a brand name used by the lens manufacturer Kobroi.

As for cleaning it, good luck, it appears to be a complicated design mechanically and you're unlikely to find any kind of guide. For future projects like this you should really remove the aperture shield before cutting it, Kobori ones are usually held on by 3-4 screws and can be easily removed. I personally just leave them off.

Thanks for the speedy response! Unfortunately, I really wanted to take the aperture guard off, but I accidently slip when unscrewing the screws, and birded the screw. Fortunately, the lens has seemed to work itself out. There is no filings in the glass, and none of the of the rings(focus, zoom, aperture & macro) seem to be making any noise after playing with the lens for a while. And, once again, thanks for the replies!
