Q mount drawing

Does anyone know of a dimensioned drawing for the Q lens mount? I watched this video for making a shift-tilt adapter and thought I might want to try it someday.

When searched in Bing Images with 'pentax K mount drawing' (not Q mount) I find a drawing which is pointing to this thread on PentaxForums:
OP wants to machine a K lens mount. I can't find the drawing itself there.
Someone suggests to cannibalize a damaged teleconverter or lens. FWIW.

Yes, for the mount end, let other people do the work! I think the cheapest Q-mount adapters (which can have their Q-mount ends removed) are around $7 on eBay. After that, you just put screw holes in your prototyped tilt hood or whatever else you want, and screw it to the mount!

FWIW, I've seen more "adaptable" tilt/shift devices than this RP one. They are typically made from an old lens and some bike innertube (for a flexible bellows). Get all fancy and put in a wire to hold it in various positions... Hey! I might just make this a project for myself!
