  5. The Premier BOLEX repair shop is still taking mail-in orders... Visit us at: DrBolex.com
  6. It probably may have been knocked out of place in shipping.... (like that never happens)... a SPANNER tool is what is needed to access a good grip on those nuts. those are available at a full service tool/hardware store. you want to adjust till you have an equal black area around the image. while you're at the tool/hardware store get a little ounce bottle of model car paint to apply to the nuts you adjusted to lock them down. Then with compressed air gently blow out dust a flacks of paint loose in the viewfinder. Good Luck!
  7. Hello David and Thomas... Please contact me direct through my website: drbolex.com Lets see where we can get with optics. Arthur!
  8. YES! it is absolutely possible to get a super16 Bolex camera is good running condition. From Doctor Bolex! ... a fully converted H16 REX or REX1 with masks and viewfinder converted too. You can add upgrades such as 10X or 13X optics and those get expensive. The 6X viewfinder has been modified optics that make the image appear larger. we'll also convert your came. Visit the website.
  9. Hello Thomas, Optics... I've come to the conclusion the it's simple VooDoo black magic... An understanding of the principles of light is essential. I've found that it is a well kept secret, as I've yet to find a person that can do my optics. This is an early Ver. 1 of this attempt. Do you do Optics?
  10. try this https://www.ebay.com/itm/293466201731?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649
  11. Using 16mm film... Do anyone use any other format besides 16mm and Super16mm? I know there are others... But am I wrong in saying Super16mm is the most popular? Come visit us at our revised website: drbolex.com Thanks... Arthur!
  12. Okay... Here's a conversion to 200' film loads https://www.ebay.com/itm/292940692573?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649
  13. Tyler Thank you so much... I found an UGLY EBM that runs great ...so my solution is to swap out the entire electrical short of the motor and see what happens. some how i doubt the motor lost it's mind. BUT we'll see Again Thanks Tyler!
  14. OK... took a dive inside and found no other fuse. So a simple fix would be: just swap out ALL entire internal wiring - boards and all.
  15. Thanks Tyler... Yep tried all that... this is the way it cam to me... I've been using my trusty 12V power pak that I know is 12VDC to test it. BUT!... isn't there another fuse inside??? not the one in the base... It seems to have blown something . . .
  16. Yes.. it clicks into position just like normal....
  17. Hello Again My Bolex Gurus!!! OK... Have a Bolex EBM - it Runs but only one speed - and pretty fast ,,, not one of the slower speeds... What could be causing this??? How many fuses are on-board/inside the camera? beside the one in the base. It seems I recall seeing a fuse tucked under a circuit board in side the camera. Well would love to hear from someone... Arthur!
  18. Hi All you GURUs out there I have a Vario Switar 100 Poe lens I put in new batteries he electric eye and zoom still do not work. Is there a recommendation of WHO i can send this to and have it checked out? Arthur!
  19. OR you can add a Nikon mount for example... or your favorite lens mount.
  20. Here's a Bayonet Bolex... with carrying handle and motor option... https://www.ebay.com/itm/292595881532?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2648
  21. DOM YOU'RE A GENIUS!!!! it was the loose sprocket wheel... it's weird how the auto-thread never failed... cause that would have point to something wrong in the sprocket wheel setting... Thanks again Dom!.... Genius at large!
  22. No Simon... some spools work fine and others don't... and with no take-up spool it work always. the film never jumps from the sprockets ... the loop just very slowly starts getting smaller... and if there was an alignment issue it wouldn't work with or without spools... It's almost as If the take-up is pulling the film too much.
  23. Hello all you Bolex gurus out there... OK, I have a Bolex H16 REX 5 that threads nicely and seems to be running well. The camera maintains the loop while running with out a take-up reel... But as soon as the take-up reel used the loop begins to be lost. But note not all take-up reels cause this... I switched out take-up reel and some reels work fine and some do not. and it seems to be consistent. any ideas on what causes this to happen? Arthur!
  24. Hello again... If anybody knows... Please Share! Where can I get 8mm raw stock - Where can I get it processed - Where can I get it scanned to a video file. NOT Super 8 - but double wide 8mm I'm trying to help out some student again... and they have their own cameras... Any recommendations would be very helpful... since we can't find anything. Arthur!
