I have come across this auction and since I am not that much into technics: does this work? Anyone tried it, yet?

I'm not seeing the aperture lever in there, so it might make the diaphragm manual, but they should work just fine

And the most important is that it can be the focusing ring/tube to modify lens on medium format, such as Angenieux 100/2, dallmeyer super six 100/1.9, TTH 100/2, super baltar 100/2 etc
I don't fully understand this; it is probably for using lenses without the focusing ring, such as enlarger lenses, but I guess this modification has still to be made by a shop.
I don't see the point in using these lenses, what I'd really need for this system would be a Tilt&shift affordable lens in the 75-135 range or else...

It is a variable macro tube; basically a copy of the one Pentax makes. Pentax calls theirs a Helicoid extension tube. I have one and they are very handy.
