Hello everyone! I'm new to the forum, and relatively new to projection lenses. I recently picked up the Kipronar 1.9/140. It is in serious need of deep cleaning (dust, grime etc. on the elements.)

I'm posting here because I cannot seem to find any tutorials for this lens on how to disassemble it to begin the cleaning process. What I'm asking is for one of you wonderful people to assist me in providing some info in how to begin this project.

Also I have already tried to unscrew the front element (where the branding is) it seems to be super tight, what tool would I need to loosen it?

I also have one more question what would I use to adapt this lens to my Canon eos m? I can't seem to find any detailed info on what mount/ helicoid would be a good choice for this lens.

Thank you to everyone in advance! I'm sorry if this is in the wrong section. I can provide pictures if needed.
