  1. Thank you very much, Simon and Dom! Very good information. I may take Simon up on his camera service, but I'm still collecting the various bits and pieces - I want to sure I have a sound candidate for long-term use before I invest in a proper clean, lube, and adjust. Dom - thanks for the photos of the B&H turret mount. I wonder how many of the cameras were stripped of their fine lenses by M43 still photographers only to find out they are NOT d-mount!? My 134 is in very nice shape, seems complete and fully operable - except for the lenses. The objectives are all still there .25" - .5" and 1.5" - I think I may have the proper .5" lens from the same seller as the camera. Gonna keep looking for the other two. The wide angle seems to be very hard to find - there are no wide angles listed for the 8mm Filmos in the 1938 or 1948 accessories list. I really wanted know about the lubrication points - looks like there are two on the back of the camera right below the viewfinder eyepiece. I can also see one under the turret plate for the shutter. Thinking one small drop of light machine oil on each spot can't hurt while testing. Just picked up a parts camera very inexpensively - I will use it for further explorations. Is the main spring caged or otherwise contained? (I will stay away if not.) Can the front turret be removed safely? Then the plate under the turret on the front of the camera? Thanks all, my first post here - again, much appreciated! Chris L.
  2. Trying to find basic maintenance info for my newly-acquired B&H 134 8mm. This one is a Turret model. Still tracking down lenses, but I'd like to at least lubricate and clean the thing before I run film through it. Unlike my Filmo 70, I can't any manuals on the net. Folks have told me that the US-made 134 turret models don't take straight D-mount lenses? True? If so, does the B&H mount have a name? Any adapters possible? Any help and info much appreciated.
