Tamron Adaptall P/KA Adapter - AS IS - Really Reduced

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Tamron Adaptall P/KA Adapter - AS IS

Asking Price
$35.00 USD

Item Location
Austin Area, TX (United States)

Item Description
Tamron P/KA adaptall adapter with a physical actuation problem.

The good news - the electrical interface between camera and adapter appears to work as it should - with this adapter mounted on a lens, I can change the f-stop setting on the camera - this is good.

What's not good is that there is a physical, mechanical problem with this adapter. With the adapter mounted to a lens, the aperture actuation lever binds-up. It may or may-not close the aperture blades to the f-stop setting.

Yes, I've tried it on several Tamron Adaptall lenses - same problem on every one. Yes, I've tried a different adapter (both P/K and P/KA) on these lenses and they work fine. So, it's something physical with this adapter.

In the one photo, I've circled, in red, a scrape mark that seems to have been caused by mounting the adapter on a lens. However, I can see no connection between the scrape mark and the problem.

I'm thinking that someone "out there" with more patience and less arthritis than I have, can, hopefully, fix this.
