Jim, hope you'll give us a full report on how the Hawks conversion feels in use. I took a look at his bare helicoid offering, sent an inquiry, so far have not heard back. He's not really offering enough measurements to commit to a $250 mystery helicoid and it appears to be a bit different than the pics above
thminduc, never had one apart, if you find someone to work on the project though, ask if they'll do the same to the Contax N lenses as well please
bhjazz, I'm sure the Micro-Tools rubber rings will do the trick, plus you'll be set for every size you run up against. The Ace hardware chair leg rubber tip worked well for me though for $2.99. I would add that it took a significant amount of force, a clear loc-tite like compound was used on the vanity ring and every other screw in the lens
Still no progress for me, I need to make a tool transition from the garage to indoors as it certainly feels like winter here...
