Yes it works perfectly on my D7000. It was a K series lens which only required taking out 4 of the 5 screws. The one opposite the 5.6 is left in because the spring is attached.

I have a broken 28 f 3.5 AI lens I can practice on. One of the glass elements inside is bouncing around, so no big drama there if I screw up. After the 28I will move on to the 135, which is one of those old silver barrel lenses, huge and heavy. The 105mm looks like one of the last lenses made before the AI thing came around and is the one I want to use the most. If it all fails, no huge loss.
I would send them out to get them done if I didn't have my eyes on much more expensive DX wide angle glass right now (tokina 11-16mm f/2.8). Need to first sell the D90 and D40 - after 2 weeks with the D7000, I know I have no use for these bodies any longer.
