Getting closer to Munchkin with a 35mm - What helical?

About 1/4 of the frame - but would like to get closer

My 35mm f1.4 Summilux focuses only to 1 meter - which ordinarily is no problem, I would not shoot people closer with a wide angle, and for landscapes, no problem. But I've been wondering if a helical adapter might be worth trying. I currently have a Metabones dumb adapter, and the only thing dumber was me for have replaced a $10 Chinese adapter with a $90 Chinese adapter.

I searched eBay for an M to E helical, and came up only with this one  - anyone have it? Any good?

I'm cat-sitting Munchkin for my girlfriend as she has her kitchen floor re-done this week. He's supposed to be "fixed" but he has a big stuffed animal of some kind we call "Humpy" where he spends a good part of his day...
