Bolex single frame switch push back

Floris Vanhoof

Recommended Posts


When making singel frames, the switch lever on the side of my Bolex H16 likes to stay in the P position.

I have to give it the switch a little touch to go back to the middle. What to do about this?

On my other Bolex, a well working SB, this jumps back to the middle with ease.

Ideally you would take the mechanism out of the casting to access both the plunger and the switch, as Simon says, but it won’t hurt to try a drop of oil on the plunger shaft and work it in.
You might find it doesn’t help though.
