Thanks for that info GnarlydogOZ. If you have a link to share or a picture that would be appreciated.

I ended up refitting mine in a "hollowed out" (removed glass)  broken lens and then interfaced to my camera with a "macro reverse lens ring" (modified and glued on).

Here, adapted to a different lens

repurposing a SLR lens' helicoid to refit a projection lens

For an "off the shelf" easier solution I often use "macro helicoids" (available on evilBay). The advantage of those helicoids is that they extended the minimum focus distance to allow close-up photography

"macro helicoid" available in different lengths and diameters. Some adapting of a lens might be necessary but M42, M52 and M65 are popular mounts
