500mm f4.5 parts

this is also being asked about at the other site.

i was putting my 500 on a tripod the other evening and dropped it. it landed on the mount. focusing module is being seen to. i used a dremel to clean up the mount as best i could. i had to remove about 20% of it to get the cam to mount. i think it will work once the rest of the lens is repaired. problem is that i'm scared the camera may fall off next time. i was close to being very ill when it happened.. the part is the very end of the lens that removes to add a filter.

i don't care if it's a screw mount or K. even if you don't have one , can you lead me in a direction to try and find one.
