Converting an SDM lens to screw drive

I am wondering if it is time to convert my 55mm f/1.4 to screw drive. It has been increasingly difficult to "wake up" as time goes on, and today, when I put it on my KP after several months of disuse, I thought the motor had failed completely. I managed to get it running after several minutes of gyrations, but the writing is clearly on the wall.

I read through Ron's instructions in the recently revived classic post here https://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/57836086 but this process is way, way, way beyond my skill level with computers. Is there a service, a shop, or a recommended reliable individual who can do this job for me for a reasonable price?
