Some tools (the better you have, the better your result and nerve endings); and you may not need them all since with some things you can improvise to good effect, but then with others not so much. Along with some patience, fairly good light and some time. I think that between "Pedrodelta" and "niceshot" here with what they've offered and the support they've provided I'm certain you'd end up with exactly what you're looking for. I might be able to help as well.

I'm just finishing one and about to start another. The testing so far has proven well worth the effort. I created my own lubricant composition since I feel the throw on the len's focus ring is short. Specific dampening that's suited to me was important. To that end I followed an impulse to introduce some things I've had prior success with that would not have been typically available for this kind of use during the time this lens was manufactured. This's no normal maintenance run & done, because in what's popular regarding vintage lenses, so much that's related to this lens's design bucked convention. It was more a restoration that ran stem to stern. The problems? Dust and debris inside, corroded fasteners, a lot of oil on the aperture blades, the focus ring just about seized (sometimes more so than at others), and intermittent double-vision often most noticeable at infinity. Also, Pedrodelta I had your loose barrel. Thank you for your post. It assisted in maintaining a needed "well OK then why not?" attitude. If there is any way I can help anyone with questions about doing this I'd be more than happy to assist.
