Exact thing happened to me yesterday. I've already contacted Don but he's out of those. Youxin didn't have neither. Got a different lead I'll follow up later today. Will post whatever I find here. Hopefully you can find a source I can buy from as well...

Well thanks! I'll let you know if anything comes up. Look for spare parts for lenses like for the cron or summitar

Are you talking about the small conical locking pin on the focusing lever? I've had a look at mine and it seems to be something a machinist/toolmaker should be able to make, though finding someone to do it would be the problem.
