I would choose this one. It will handle more possible designs.

It depends on the lens design. At times, you will need bowed in, bowed out or straight. Longer lenses need longer tools.

I improvise with these tools:

Ok, so you advise me on how you, are keys bent.
The primcipale problem for me was to understand if "straight" or "wrong".

Please, tell me, how can you have settled on how much force to use, to close / tighten, glass / lens??

PS: What is the rubber ring??

Thank you for your kindness

You are asking for a quick answer to a huge topic. I suggest you do a search and read up on everything before you ruin some lenses.

Try Manual Focus Forum / Maintenance & Repairsfor example and especially this site to begin from: Favorite Classics / Camera & Repair Articles

Good luck

I understand that it is not so simple, but disassemble MF lenses, I do not think it is not so impossible.
Just be very careful, and if we see the difficulties, just stop.

Am I wrong??

Thanks for your links.
