I have taken a long time to complete this setup, and in fact the focus adjusting lever and the Nikon F to M42 adapter (older version Made in Japan) only just arrived in the post today. It is fortunate that the Nikon F-M42 adapter diameter is around 59mm which allows the Novoflex ASTAT-MFT adapter to fit snugly on it; the currently available new Nikon F-M42 adapters on eBay will not fit this adapter though.
