Vintage Nikon lens Repair

I have a set of Vintage Nikon still lenses, and all have been perfect but recently the 35mm 1.4 started having focussing and Aperture issues. Taking it into a local repair place they said the aperture selector place was broken off. Its a small little 2mmx2mm square piece of metal inside the lens to move the aperture blades. They said they couldnt get the parts to fix it so declared it unrepairable.

The aperture works fine and opens and closes freely using the lever in the lens mount. But doesnt click to each stop so stays closed.

Does anyone know a place i could either get the part fixed, find a vintage part or have something custom made?


Maybe try Duclos. If he doesn't have the part, bet he knows where to get it.
