Lens Mod, Restorations






This section of our blog is dedicated to feature my past and current work. I do restoration and modding for my own lenses only and do not offer any cleaning/restoration services.

Tinkering with mechanics has been my aptitude as early as I can remember, at the age of 4. I would randomly try to study what's inside things and to do experiments long before I learned to read and write.

All of my conversions are from other mounts (usually Minolta MD, M42, Pentax K, Olympus) to Nikon mount. 

For my restoration work, this involves cleaning up the cosmetic appearance from dirt and dust. Occasionally some lenses come with fungus and need cleaning. I normally avoid lenses with haze. Haze takes more effort to clean and you usually have to scrub the surface real hard since they are embedded. Sometimes I also fix broken parts to make them work again.

PHILOSOPHY: Nothing is impossible if you really believe and with a sheer force of will.
