I'd still get a chipped adapter, rather than having to mess around with gluing the chip onto one yourself - what if you did it in slightly the wrong location? Who bears the risk of improper assembly? You do.

I've managed to glue a chip to an F-mount AI style TC, with very little hassle. But the hassle heavily depends on how well the chip fits the mount; dremeling may be required in some cases.

Does the chipped adapter have lens aperture adjustment? If it doesn't, it is almost useless with G-type lenses (mind the OP).
