There are lots of quite cheap Contax & other still lens adapters to C-mount available on Ebay. It might be possible to either add the cylinder over those adapters or to remove the mount from the adapter and fit it on that kind of cylinder. However, keeping the flange focal distance precise enough might be a problem.

 

Les Bosher could make me a Contax to TS adapter, but £220 is a bit too much as the wide angle is so lacking on the Contax side.
