Take a drill and a deep breath.... mounting a Zeiss with Leitax

I got a Carl Zeiss planar T* 50mm F1.7 C/Y mount cheap and bought a Pentax mount from Leitax. I could not remove one screw from the C/Y mount, and took the lens to my local photo/repair shop. No problem they said, but after a week they handed it back with the damn thing still in it. So I took a drill and drilled the head of the screw out myself. After that, mounting the Leitax was a piece of cake.

Note the one screw missing at the top right.
