Bolex Variable Shutter Stuck

Recommended Posts


I recently purchased a Rex 5 Bolex. Everything seems to be running well and accordingly but I am not able to change the shutter.
It is currently on the sitting on the red line but will not move down if I try to. I do not want to force it.

Am I doing something wrong or is there a defect in the shutter?

Thanks Dom! 

You were 100% right! Didn't realize it pulled out before sliding down. 

Thanks for sharing the manual, I'll have a look.
