Re: M42 adapter for Mamiya SX and Fujinon M42 EBC

There was adapter M42 for SX and EBC lenses, brand was Bokkeh and I bought one few years ago.

I can’t find these any more, but maybe something similar exists somewhere.

When SX lens is mounted the ridge fall into groove and plate inside press the pin. Works perfectly and is well made.

Very nice! Wish they were still available.

There was a discussion here several months ago about modifying adapters. My thought was to take one of the 'plate' M42-Minolta SR adapters and shrink the diameter by filing down the edge; that seemed like it would be easier than removing the central screwmount socket and filing down the surrounding surface. Unfortunately haven't found the time/tools to give this a serious try yet.
