I should not worry about losing electric contacts. Just set exposure by manual settings, make a test shot and check the image by LCD-monitor using helping adds as histogram and highlight blinking clipping tool.

Get some simple extension tubes by E-bay, an old fashioned Nikkor, Rodenstock, Schneider, Fujinon, or Tominon enlarger lens (out of darkroom age), plus connection ring, and you have a nice starting kit for a tight budget.
