Where to find Canon FD mount?

I need a mount for the end of a 35mm adapter so I can switch out my Canon FD lenses. Most people here said they made theirs with parts from an old/broken camera. Is there any place I can buy a mount like this? Otherwise I guess I need to find a broken Canon and tear it apart. Thanks.

Maybe something like this may work?

FD lens mount from extension/macro tubes, why not?

I`am using EOS EF mount extension tubes in my 35mm adapter (for lens mount and housing )...

Maybe you can use cheap Canon FD extension tubes from e-bay?

Wayne,

That T-mount (and most T-mounts) is the wrong way around. Most T-mount adaptors are for connecting T-mount lenses to other camera system bodies. What he needs is a "reverse T-mount," and those are few and far between.

They are rare, but here is one. Of course, then you have a T-mount to deal with, and additional adaptors to get that on normal filter threads, or otherwise connect it to your adaptor.

Do you happen to have a link to one of these for sale? I'm still a bit confused as to what will work as it appears most of them are the reverse of what I need.

Luke,

I was in the same situation a few weeks back and bought a used, cheap Canon FD compatible teleconverter from www.keh.com. These teleconverters have both the male and female mounts. I just unscrewed the male part and screwed/glued it to my ABS fitting.

Here is the page for these teleconverters.

I paid $4 + shipping for mine. Just make sure you get an FD compatible tele.

HTH,

Yes, it looks like it. The description says FD and the mounting ring itself looks exactly like an FD mount, at least like the one I have.
