8mm camera maintenance & repair

  1. Lee Rust
    I've looked and looked for technical service info on the older double-8 cameras like my Bell & Howell 134, but mostly what I find are eBay listings of items for sale. There's plenty of data and discussion online for still cameras and 35mm or 16mm cine but not so much for 8mm. I've come upon a few specialized professionals like 'bolexrepair 'or 'cinetinker' who do provide useful advice and procedures, but what other info is available for those who want to try to clean-lube-adjust these old 8mm models themselves? Assuming the use of proper tools, watch oil, etc...is it really just a matter of careful trial and error with a sacrificial camera?
