Bellows and older lens

Model II bellows
Nikkor-Q auto 1:4 f 200 mm telephoto
Nikkor-H auto 1:2 f 50 mm lens
F close-up No. 2 lens
lens reversing ring and a Rowi camera mount.
My thought were to use the bellows with my D7000, the extra stuff I'm not sure if I would use it with my DSLR but I do have a old Nikkormat that is collecting dust.
D7000 + D750
SB-28 * SB-600

Any lens (with an aperture ring) can be used on a bellows as there's no electrical or mechanical connection available when the camera is mounted on a bellows. When shooting macro, you're usually shooting totally manual..... focus, exposure, etc.
The hardest part is controlling the aperture. Although lenses with rings can be operated manually, at extreme magnifications that can screw up composition and focusing. Some bellows have aperture controls built into them, others don't so you'll need a BR6.
