Hello, I’ve recently been gifted a Bell & Howell 70DL, my first 16mm camera. It came for free from a private collection someone was getting rid of and I couldn’t let it be discarded. As far as I know this person bought the camera for looks and not to use, I plan to change that. The issue with the camera is that when I go to wined the camera, there is no resistance or tension on the turn key, and no ratcheting sound of the drive spring being put under load. In my opinion I believe the Drive spring to be broken or to have disconnected from the turn key. I have recently been trying my hand at repairing vintage lenses and 8mm cameras from my own personal collection as a hobby with a great deal of success (surprising myself in the process). I’m looking for any advice to aid me with this repair. Every little tip helps. I know the risks of attempting to replace a Drive spring which is why I was hoping to reach out to someone with more experience and guidance. All the best Chase

Hi guys, I've just joined the forums as I'm hoping to start pursuing cinematography, I've been a keen stills photographer for some time but found an Eyemo the other day that I couldn't help but buy! It was sold to me as 'not running', so I spent most of today completely stripping it down and rebuilding it. It runs perfectly now except I'm missing a couple of pieces! 1) The top spindle that holds the spool 2) The shutter I was thinking I could probably make the spindle as a worst case scenario, but I'm stuck on the shutter! Does anyone know where I can find these parts? I can't imagine they're easy to come by but I'm hoping theres a website I've not found yet! Thanks! Milan
