okay on to a different weird salvage project, i have a nice set of lenses for my smartphone but one of them, um, popped out? like it's got a housing (with threads for attaching to the holder and to the other lenses) and it's got the little glass piece. and the glass piece is. out


i tried pressing it back in with a microfiber cloth but it didn't seem like it was really seated, nor does it want to be. maybe there's a missing locking ring or something?

@scanlime i got it to work! the parts i was looking at were not threaded, but it turns out one of them came apart into two parts, which threaded together. and the glass had to be clamped between them!

i had to look at the other lens i had to figure out the right orientation, though. I think it's back together and working~!
