UK Devon manual lenses

I have just joined the forum but have been using it for reviews for about 18 months. I have micro 4/3 cameras, Lumix and Olympus, and found a broken Pentax SLR from the 90s when clearing some of my Dad's stuff. It had the 50mm 1.7 standard lens, and I got an adapter to m4/3 for it. I now have a collection of Asahi / Pentax / Takumar lenses, the oldest of which is 1969. I have Russian (Leica thread) and manual Olympus too, but the Takumars are the nicest in my view. 49mm filter thread is a great boon - the m4/3 lenses I have all have different threads, even between themselves. Based in Devon in the UK so if there's anyone around here with similar interests let me know. And if anyone has any old (pre-1960) sewing machines...but that's not really relevant here, although the quality of build and lack of automation are. :-)
