I had posted earlier asking how to flip a Kodak Tourist 12.5 lens but had not responses, so I poked around and found my own work-around.
I've been able to access the lens, which needs a retaining ring removed from the front side, but it is frozen in place and I don't have a spanner on hand and my youngest seems to have made off with the split ring tool I've used in the past. I tried a compass and a very fine flathead screwdriver but to no good end
I'd like to ask if someone out there would be willing to take a crack at this small lens, it's a single element affair and is in a simple mount and I don't think it will pose to great a challenge to someone who has dealt with stubborn lenses before.
If you can do this for me, let me know and what any charges would be.
