  1. 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!
  2. 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!
  3. OR you can add a Nikon mount for example... or your favorite lens mount.
  4. 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
  5. 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!
  6. 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.
  7. 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!
  8. 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!
  9. I'd love a copy Tom... PM me that Please!
  10. Samuel that would be great... could you PM me these for the Som Berthiot Pan Cinor 16 (17 to 85mm), Thank you so much! Arthur...
  11. OK sports fans... The reflex on the early REX cameras is so small... I hear complaints that with super 16 it's even smaller... I've made some modifications to increase the size... and so far the works best... can see the full image, almost 10X but not quite... but the larger opening at the eyepiece is what really helps. there's no pinching or distortion in the image.... CHECK IT OUT!
  12. Thank you for reminding me of this... I think of you now every time I do this...
  13. Well Got the Film test back and it ALL worked as expected.., Zooms stay in focus and centered... what I loved best about this is that there was NO machining required other than for the shutter. it all fits fine... The only misfire was the lens .... it adds vignetting on the wide end of the lens, SO ALL CAME OUT AS EXPECTED, except for the lens
  14. Zachariah Thanks so much for your advice... since September of 2016, I've begun converting Bolex H16s and others to super16... and experimenting along the way... conversions are not easy... but with Bolex... very doable. check out my website or visit us on Facebook... Arthur!
  15. Dom... don't understand why I want to make a lens not work...
  16. Dom... I think we're saying the same thing...
  17. A prime lens will be fine... it's a zoom lens in question... this particular lens on a REX will focus BUT it will loose focus as you zoom.
  18. so you are saying a zoom lens works the same on a reflex REX as an M camera... each has a different distance to the film plane... and you are saying that does not matter??
  19. that lens came off a "M" camera... when I put the lens on a REX camera... focusing thru the camera's reflex system... then looking into the Zoom's reflex system... the Zoom is slightly out of focus... very slight but noticeable. and vice-versa
  20. Hello Dom... that's an 8mm film block and turret... I machined out the inside so the shutter could rotate freely, and dang, it seems to line up... have shot some film tests and made some minor tweaks... the flange on this lens is shallower than RX lenses... make sense?
  21. I’ve created a hybrid… combining 8mm and 16mm parts. I recently discover the joys of the reflex viewer up stream from the lens iris. This allows the image to stay bright, not affected by the iris. So, I took converted super16 and machined out an 8mm film block. The lens’s frame mask was converted to super16 aspect ratio. It all seems to line up… anybody see any potential problems???
  22. Dom... Could you please tell me how to adjust/reset the Over-Wind Stop mechanism... I've recently lost 2 cameras I think due to some spring issue... In both cases... while holding in my hands... the spring exploded inside and I could hear it coming unwound. thank you Arthur!
  23. Thank you Dom... Now it's all coming back to me... thanks
