  1. Any help is appreciated.  I have a B&H Filmo DA 16mm film camera that I just dis-assembled, with out a service manual.  I did NOT get injured by the spring.  I did however dis-assemble the entire clockwork/gear works not knowing that I did not have to do that. All the gear works fell apart before I could photograph them in their proper place. I was on Dom Jaegar's Cinetinker blog and saw pictures of a Eyemo 35mm service procedure. It looked a lot like a Filmo 70.  Now to the question, do you have or know where I could buy a B&H Filmo 70 service manual?? Or other help.

      Hi, Michael

      Immediate help might come from the picture. Else you can send me the camera, plate screwed in to secure the spring, I will assemble.

      I could give the camera a complete overhaul. That would cost CHF 600. Afterwards you would have a three years warranty.

      For further information please see the English pages of my website.

      Regards, Simon

      This photo helps greatly. It confirms that I did get the Filmo drive train re-assembled correctly. Thanks for help.I will be building a caging clamp for the drive main spring in the Filmo so I will be able to remove it without damage or harm.
