Does anyone know if you can get the pins to hold the focus rings on a preston handset fitted after market? I am working with an older handset which doesnt have the locating pins and wondered how easy it is to get done... (sick of marking up lenses endlesly)

I think GPI actually does them. Check with them and Preston. I know they can be done afterwards.

Actually Bob DeRose used to do that conversion and later GPI, but all the jigs and parts went eventually to Preston.
Not sure if they still do it, but Preston would be your best bet.
